Happy Friday. Using Max Lucado again this morning. I think you will be inspired and uplifted. Have a blessed day. Judy

God is Righteous

The Bible says in 1 Peter 3:18, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” Yes, righteousness is what God is—and yes, righteousness is what we are not! And, yes, righteousness is what God requires. But Romans 3:21 tells us, “God has a way to make people right with Him.”

In the 23rd Psalm, David said it like this, “He leads me in the path of righteousness.” And Daniel 9:14 declares, “Our God is right in everything He does.”

The path of righteousness is a narrow, winding trail up a steep hill. At the top of the hill is a cross. At the base of the cross are countless bags full of innumerable sins. Get the point? Calvary is the compost pile for guilt. Wouldn’t you like to leave yours there as well?

From Traveling Light (Max Lucado devotional)

***************** He leadeth me. (w/lyrics) Burdens are Lifted (Gaither Homecoming Singers) Because He Lives (words and music by Bill and Gloria Gaither) w/lyrics. Artist not given.

Footnote: If you sometimes feel like you can't make it through another day and life is dragging you down with uncertainty, just listen to Because HE Lives. Life is worth the living....just Because HE Lives. God bless you today. Judy

    Judy, you are so right. It is too easy to be myopic and focus on ourselves while God has such breadth, depth and range of vision. His purpose may not be made known to us but if we believe that all things work toward good for us then there is a purpose.

    I like that metaphor "The Compost Bin" What a wonderful way to look at our sins, as being composted. emoticon
