Jesus has done all things well. He doesn’t make accommodations for our sin and guilt, he paid for them when he died on the cross.
“One holy name she blesses, Partakes one holy food, And to one hope she presses, With ev’ry grace endued…” What does it look like to forgive someone? That might be an easy question, until the hurt hits close to home. This Sunday we’ll consider Jesus command to forgive. We have the perfect example in Jesus. More importantly we have the perfect motivation when we look at how he forgave us.
Would you trust Crazy Bob’s Autos or Flow Honda with the purchase of your next car? If you needed a sitter for the kids would you ask the person next to you in the checkout line at Food Lion or a trusted friend or family member? This Sunday we’ll see that God gives you his word. That’s something you can always trust.
“Your’re just the worst!” Seriously, as each of stands before our God, we can honestly say these words. The reason is that we don’t need to compare ourselves to each other. We compare ourselves to God. God is the only one who can save us. We held our church picnic yesterday. God blessed us with a wonderful day!
The Golden Rule sounds simple enough – Love your neighbor as yourself. The trouble is that we are so sinful that we can find our way around just about ANYTHING! How corrupt is the human heart! “How corrupt is my heart!” says the honest Christian.
