One Terrible Act

Hosted by

I have said and done some terrible things in my life that I regret but cannot take back. Even God’s great saints would confess the same. This is why we all need a Savior. Paul gave hearty approval of Stephen’s death. Moses slew the Egyptian. Where do we go after such moments? Often God takes us to the wilderness. His forgiveness is available to us instantly because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. But, the appropriation of it and the development of our character will take years of interaction with Him. Oh thank God that one terrible act does not define us.

So he looked this way and that, and when he saw there was no one around, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. He went out the next day, and behold, two Hebrews were fighting with each other; and he said to the offender, “Why are you striking your companion?”  But he said, “Who made you a prince or a judge over us? Are you intending to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?” Then Moses was afraid and said, “Surely the matter has become known.  When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he tried to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the presence of Pharaoh and settled in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well. Exodus 2:11-15 NASB

Do I realize how much I have been forgiven? Has my life been a source of great love as a result? (He who is forgiven much, the same loveth much).

God, as this day begins- help me walk in Your ways, extend Your great love to those who need it so desperately. Please empower me by the Holy Spirit to discern Your will, share Your words, and to be present with those I encounter. Lord, be very real to each in Connie’s family as they mourn her passing and celebrate her life. Be especially close to the families involved in the tragic car accident. Heal every heart. May Your love and forgiveness cover a multitude of sins.
