PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Today, if you hear God’s voice, do not harden your heart (Zep 3:1,5 ). #PutFaithInJesus #JesusDiedForAllOurSin
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
I am astounded at the complete indifference of men towards God. Even in the midst of God’s discipline, men sin even more. But this is the depravity of man. Should I be so surprised, is it not the depravity of my own soul? Yet, God is there in their midst, working, doing good and meting out justice.
Today, as I think about the rejection of God in the sinful city of Jerusalem, I think about the Lord Jesus and his descent into a dark tomb, I am struck by three things:
◦ The Son of God entered into our sin infested world to deliver all men from sin, the supreme example of God’s love for us
◦ He was despised and rejected though he did no wrong; men hated him and nailed him to a cross
◦ The justice meted out by God in Christ was the cleansing of all man’s sin by the blood shed by Jesus at the cross; he was our substitute, bore our punishment for sin
WHO DOES THAT?
What sorrow awaits those who reject the love of God in Christ.
