Episode 133: God's Promises Psalm 103:10-12

“He does not treat us as our sins deserve

    or repay us according to our iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

    so great is his love for those who fear him;

as far as the east is from the west,

    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

- Psalm 103:10-12

Americans have an obsession with justice. Think about the number of crime dramas on TV today. True crime podcast, entire networks devoted to crime. You can probably list five without even trying.

God loves justice. It’s the reason He cannot let sin go unpunished. But God is as merciful as He is just, and nowhere are those two qualities more clear than the cross where Jesus died. Jesus took the punishment we deserved. As a result, we can confess our sins without fear, knowing God will greet us with mercy, love, and grace.

Reflect: 

Is guilt or shame keeping you from experiencing the full measure of God’s grace?

Is there anything you need to confess and repent of today? As things come to mind, pray and ask for forgiveness.

Is there anyone you need to forgive? Ask God to help you forgive the way He forgives you.
