Remember Your Redemption

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Deuteronomy 14-16 today.
Moses had been with Israel for forty years. In the Book of Deuteronomy, he reminded Israel of many things. One time he said, “And you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and you shall be careful to observe these statutes” (Deuteronomy 16:12). They needed to remember from where they came and what their condition was, because doing so would insure that they would keep the statutes of the Lord.
This truth holds for Christians also. Peter says that the disciple who makes no effort to grow, has forgotten that he was saved from his old sins (2 Peter 1:5-9). Paul told Titus that he was to remind the Christians where he preached that they were to treat all people well, remembering that the members of the church were also once unlovable people, but God, through the gifts of salvation that He poured out through Jesus Christ, saved us (Titus 3:1-7).
Today, think about the kind of person you were before Jesus saved you. See what it does to your Christianity.
