Father, thank you so much for the wonderful day yesterday. It was a blessing have Daniel and Renita sharing their talents in ministry. Once again we were shown that Your Word is not stagnant and dead but is truly vibrant and living! The Bible is just as applicable today as it ever has been.
2 Peter 2:4-22 (<<click here)
Most assuredly, Lord, You are a God of Love and you have done marvelous things and sacrificed greatly so that we can be victorious over the sin that wants to trip us up and take us down. All praise to You, our Lord and Savior!
Yes, You are the personification of love itself and we know that, as Peter earlier proclaimed, “Love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8 You are love but You are also holy and just. While we still have breath and until we stand before You at the great judgment, there is always the possibility of forgiveness for our disobedience against you. But once we pass that point of no return our lot is cast. We will have chosen where we stand. If we’ve accepted Christ’s forgiveness and love, and repented of our sins, then we will join him for all eternity. But…if we rejected Christ’s forgiveness and not repented of our sins, then we will be eternally separated from him. We will bring God’s judgment upon ourselves.
2 Peter 2 clearly shows that You extend forgiveness to all but it also shows your judgment if we turn our backs on You. It is totally our choice.
Lord, help us to respond to Your love. Help us to generously share Your love. Help us to diligently proclaim Your love so that all may hear and turn to You. Amen!
