Scripture:

Psalm 103:11-12 – For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love to toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.  

 

Observation:

God’s love for us in enormous, never changing to those who submit to Him and fear the Lord.  God does not deal with us based on our sinful nature.  Rather, he removes or transgressions as far as they are wiped away when we place our faith and trust in Jesus.

Application:

I need to always remember the gospel daily and the mire of my own sin from which I was rescued!  When I was dead in my own sin without hope, God loved us so much that he sent his Son, Jesus, to pay for my sin debt in full.  That is a payment that we are incapable of making. God wipes away our sins with the blood of Jesus shed on the cross on our behalf.  God’s love is the most powerful thing in the world and has the power to change lives.  We must submit all of our lives to the Lordship of Jesus and receive his unchanging Love and mercy.  Changed lives love others and are a powerful gospel witness. There is only one way to the Father, through the Son.  The first words of Jesus ministry in Matthew 4, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  

Prayer:

Father,

Thank you for your love, undeserving grace and mercy you have given me.  Let me submit my life to you and receive you steadfast love which in response I will share with others.
