Michael Griffiths once wrote a book with the intriguing title “Cinderella With Amnesia. ” The cover shows a picture of Cinderella sitting in rags by the fireplace. She is gazing at a glass slipper in her hand, and her face reveals utter bewilderment. She obviously has no idea what it is. Nor where it came from. Although somewhere out there the prince pursues her as the love of his life, she has completely forgotten. She has no idea who she is, nor the wonderful future she could enjoy. What a tragedy! But Cinderella’s misfortune is nothing compared to that of most people today. DO YOU REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE? If you follow Jesus, you are a child of the King of Kings! Perhaps you do remember in theory, but not in practice.
