Saturday July 1 Devotional
1 Timothy 1:13-14 (KJV) Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
Where you there? Did you witness a pouring?
You see, as a gross sinner, this ol’ goat finally understood – that when we confess our sin, something else happens. God gives His mercy and grace through faith and love. It’s like a river of a cooling balm pours through us as His Grace strengthens us for His service. That’s a part of the WHY of it, to confess sin so we can once again find fellowship with Him. Mmm…
Thought: Lead me to confess my sin, so I’ll be renewed in Christ.
Oh Lord, help me to see my sin, confess my sin, find your mercy and Grace.
