Today’s Inspiration: “Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” Psalms 25:7-9 NIV. There is always a great misunderstanding that God is fearsome, judgemental and strict. But why must He give His only begotten son to die for our sins at the Cross of Calvary, so that whoever believes in Jesus will have eternal life? Why would Jesus forgive those who put him on the Cross? Luke 23:34. This is because many know Him as God but not as a Father. We may know Jesus as Messiah but not as a Son of man.
Sin can blind the eyes of our souls and hearts from the true agape love of God. The image of Father God is revealed in the full image of our Lord Christ Jesus, the Son. No one can forgive sin except God and only forgiveness can purge our sins away with His grace by faith to destroy the works of Satan and his deceptions. Apostle Paul said,“ I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19. Remember no sin is too great it cannot be forgiven and no bitterness is too deep it cannot be uprooted by God’s love. His Love never fails.
Prayer: O Lord my God, let me be rooted in your unfailing love, grace by your unmerited favour, and saved by your unlimited compassion for my soul. Let my soul be restored and my mind be renewed in repentance and humility. May my heart lavish generously like the broken alabaster jar upon you Lord, in Worship that I may have more of your love inside of me, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
