Watch Your Step

To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools. Ecclesiastes 5:1

Being in the presence of Almighty God is a holy and terrifying thing for sinners. Our Creator has no mandate to accept us, broken as we are, when we come before Him. He has every right to reject us; to obliterate us on the spot. Yet we seem to prefer to make excuses for deficiency. “I’m only human.” “It was just a mistake.” “Nobody got hurt.” “It’s no big deal.”

Perhaps not to us, but it is a big deal to Almighty God. Such a big deal is sin that God devised a way to wipe it away forever. It is serious business. He involved His own Son in this plan. His perfect and holy Son’s life in place of your life; His sinlessness for your sins. Your sins, small and great, are the reason for the crucifixion of Jesus. Praise to Christ, He saves sinners!

Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice. Amen.
