Don’t Forget!

Now these two principles of grace and government find an exhibition in the family of God, and it is most important for us to remember that God acts toward us as His people on both these principles.
If I forget His grace when I have failed, I might get into despair. If I forget His government, I may grow careless, not remembering that “if ye live according to the flesh ye are about to die” (Rom. 8:1313For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (Romans 8:13) JND), and our reaping depends upon our sowing.
