Sometimes we forget our roots.  We forget about the things that got us to where we are.  We think that we’ve learned enough to go out on our own.  In the process, we forget.  That’s kind of what happened to some in the Galatian church.  They embraced their newly found faith, but in the process of trying to grow, they forgot about their roots.  Paul brings this to the forefront when he asks them,  

After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? (Gal 3:3)

It’s something to think about this morning, isn’t it?  Where have we forgotten the most important, basic aspects of our faith?  What is it that we need to remember?  I’m a big advocate of reading through the Bible on a regular basis, and part of the reason is because we need to know our story.  We need to know what it is that we profess as followers of Jesus.  The best way to do that is to consistently go over the source material.

So, what is it that you need to remember?  And how are you going to do it?
