What I read today;
Exodus 9; 1 Samuel 7; Psalm 24; Isaiah 56; Luke 14; 2 Thessalonians 2
People will say that the reason they don’t come to Jesus is that they are unworthy. They will carefully, recite all the many sins they have committed. They’ll tell whoever is listening, that they don’t go to church, they were bad children, they’ve done bad things, their marriage broke up, they had an affair, and on and on.
The nation of Israel was doing that very thing when the Philistine army marched on them.
But Samuel told them, God is a loving and merciful God. Return to him with your whole heart and he will show you his grace and mercy.
We can feel the same thing right now. God who’s infinite mercy and grace stands at the door of our hearts and offers us grace and salvation today. No matter what we’ve done or said God made a promise. And God keeps his promises.
