A hope that belongs to the child of God is when the Lord will remember the sins of His saints no more. That is a very encouraging thought; we struggle continually with our own failings, wondering why we can’t seem to get it right. The Lord’s response to His servant is understanding and mercy. He requires of us, however, a spirit of penitence; in other words: we need to hear His word, change our thinking, and then change our behavior. The importance of this can’t be over played. On the other hand, those who refuse, but want to “play church,” the Lord said to His people a long time ago that He will not forget what they have done and what they were (at that time) currently doing (Hosea 7:2; 8:12-13).  Playing with the Lord’s memory is a disastrous thing!
