What I read today;
Ephesians 2-4; Luke 7; Isaiah 49; Psalm 11-12; Ruth 4; Exodus 12
God sure doesn’t seem to care much about an individuals background. If you look at Ruth that would definitely seem to apply.
Perez was the son of Judah’s, who was born after Judah thought he slept with a prostitute. The prostitute turned out to be Tamar his daughter in law. Ruth was a Moabites. Born of the incestuous relationship between Lot and his daughter. The union of both bring together the line that would produce King David.
We often fear that we have fallen too far to serve God. In times like this, we need to review parts of the Bible like Ruth 4. We need to hear about the ordinary people, with either ordinary pasts or checkered pasts, whom God uses to bring about glory for his people and his kingdom.
God can use even an old sinner like me. If I’ll let him.
Will you let him?
