Good Morning All,
I am so happy I have a day off. A what better way to start it, than with a word from God. My thought for today came while reading my devotional Need Him: Finding God. Think on this…
By way of analogy, if you’re at the top of a cliff, it doesn’t matter if you take a small step or a flying leap off the edge. The end result is the same. So it is with our sin. Whether we have sinned a little or a lot, we have all abandoned God, and the end result is horrifically tragic.
Never though of it that way? I have. And I’ve heard and made arguments defending my sin because they were “little”. But sin IS sin and there is NO way around it. It only pushes us further away from God and just like a grade once you’ve done bad it’s a LOT harder to get back up. Yes we all fall short, but why stay that way? Why continually do something that has you constantly lowering yourself? Why would you hurt God? Why hurt yourself? … #Thinkaboutit
He is perfect, without spot, wrinkle or blemish. And he was willing. Willing to do what no human person could do.
So that’s why we need Jesus. Or at least why I do. Because I’m not perfect and I sin (everyday). And because of Jesus my sins can be forgiven. Thanks Jesus!!!
Lord, forgive us of our sins and give us a repentant heart. Let us live a life that does not see the weight of sin but the sin itself. Amen.
