Our ability to remember affects our ability to imagine. For example, if we frequently remember that we were once "separated from Christ" with "no hope and without God in the world" (Ephesians 1:12), then it becomes easy to imagine that there is no one beyond his grace and redemption. He died for us when we hated him. Is anyone beyond this salvation? In this age, when we are not yet made perfect, imagination is integral to all of our relationships.
