“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” — 1 Peter 2:24
Sin. Do we take it seriously as we should?
Our world glosses over all kinds of behavior. We must pull our heads out of the gray mist and realize that every single sin is a big deal. It is an act of treason against the King of the universe.
Sound a bit too dramatic? Then think for a moment that this very King sent his Son to die so that we could draw close to God and know his will for us. In the face of that, when we choose our way instead of his, we are disobeying the One who gave His life for us. Instead, we should so desire to be close to God that we only want to choose his way.
The One who died for you wants what is good for you. The choice, moment by moment, is yours.
Father, I want to choose Your way and only Your way—today and every day.
