Thought for the week

The Only Answer to Our Sin Problem

"I have sinned against the Lord." - 2 Samuel 12:13
Even though most Christians would agree that being accepted as a child of God has nothing to do with works, itís often hard for all of us not to resort to that way of thinking Ė especially when we look at OTHER people. Adultery. Murder. Abuse of power. Donít these things seem like they would create a permanent wall between a person and God? Even more, would they be performed by someone who holds a special place in Godís heart?
Well, thankfully for King David (and for us), the answer to that question is a resounding ďYes!Ē Surprisingly, the Bible shows us that King David was a man who found special favor with God, even though he was guilty of all those things. But the Bible also shows us that David recognized his mistakes and called them what they were Ė sins against God. He asked Godís forgiveness and then committed himself to living Godís way.
Even though we may not have done the same things that David did, we have all sinned. Godís Word says, ďWhile we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.Ē He died to pay the penalty for our sins and to offer us forgiveness.
When you mess up, confess your sin to God just like David did. I think knowing about Davidís sins and Godís forgiveness actually gives us hope for our own lives. Ask for Godís forgiveness and for strength to resist sin in the future. Anything you say wonít be a surprise to Him. He knows everything, and He knows your heart. He is the only answer to manís ultimate problem of sin.

Another great message, Ken. Thanks.
Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.
