Day Six is Coming

Ugliness, previously hidden by darkness was now illuminated. God, however, was not perturbed.  Day two was coming. Instead, He focused on His day one accomplishment, namely, the production of light, and it was good. He worked on each created feature, one day at a time, celebrating each of His accomplishments: “he saw that it was good”.

Sinless or Sin Less

When we walk in obedience to Him, the love of God will be perfected in us. That is because there is a relationship between our obedience and our love for God and by extension others. This love perfected in us does not make us sinless, but rather we will sin less as we grow in maturity in Christ.

Mission… Impossible

God was saying to the Israelites, that these perceived impossible events might occur, however, His compassion towards His people can never be remove. His faithful love for them can never be shaken. As it was with the Israelites, so it is with us. God’s steadfast love for us is more certain than the stability and strength of the mountains and the hills.

The Gift of Sight

May we receive the gift of sight today, so we can see Him, and “the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”. May we also be able to see the any sin in our hearts and repent, so that the work of God can be accomplished within us.

The Seven Last Sayings of Jesus- Father, forgive them
