End of the world syndrome

My children, like all kids, didn’t obey all the time. Whether it was hitting a sibling for the second time in five minutes or lying about their finished homework, I sometimes lose my temper with them.

Grace defined

In his book,Transforming Grace, well-known Christian author Jerry Bridges says, “Grace is God reaching downward to people who are in rebellion against Him.”

Sin happens

I heard a cute story about two little girl playing at the playground. One of the girl’s mom kept asking her if she needed to go to the bathroom, but she refused. After a few minutes, the little girl realized she needed to go, but was too late. As a puddle formed at her feet, her little friend shook her head and said, “ It happens to the best of us.”

Rely on Others

When I lived overseas, I got the chance to rock climb with friends. We scaled large boulders usually without nets. I have an old photo of one of our outings. In the photo, one climber is being hoisted up one side of a boulder while at the same time, two friends are leaning over from the top of the rock, ready to grab her by the arms and pull her up over the top. The boulder looks like it has human chains draped over it.

Rely on Scripture

God’s word is our greatest weapon against sin and feeling condemned. Scripture not only reminds us who God is, but reminds who we are as Christians saved by grace.

Prayer

Dear Lord, Thank you for your unmeasurable grace that changes us from the inside out. Help me be grace-filled towards others when they sin. Please help me to see my own sin without condemnation, but to quickly confess and receive your forgiveness and grace. In Jesus Name. Amen.
