“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;”
- We should sit in awe of God, who loves us so much that, even though He knew us on our worst day, He still sent His Son to die for us so that we may live with Him forever. This is unbelievable mercy and grace, and a greater love cannot be found. We are so undeserving, yet so blessed.
- How can we ever justify feeling cheated by our situations or circumstances?
- How can we keep from singing His praise?
Dear Lord, thank you for loving us so much that you would send your only Son to die in our place so that we might be forgiven of our sins, and thank you for the promised eternity in Glory for those who submit their heart, mind, and soul to you. May we be faithful to You as You are faithful to us. Amen
