Walking Your Faith Jeremiah 3:25 "We lie down in our shame, And our reproach covers us. For we have sinned against the Lord our God, We and our fathers, From our youth even to this day, And have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God.�?� NKJV Loved Ones in Christ, Sin is not your friend. Yes, it may feel good to do it. There may be a "high" associated with the activity, but don't let that make you think that it is on your side. In the book of Jeremiah, God is speaking to his people about their evil activity. In the midst of His convicting words, God points them to a time that is yet to come where they will turn back to Him. When they turn back they will see the truth about their sinfulness and how much it costs. This is one of the things that occur when we repent. We see our sin, the cost of it, and the reality that we are to blame. But God does not leave us there. Our God is a God of hope and second chances. He desires to take our sin-stained lives and turn them into glorious gems. God is not interested in simply placing a band-aid on our faulty flesh; He desires to give us a brand new life. This all starts when we turn from the empty sin we have been chasing after and turn to the mighty God who desires to save us. Have you turned to Him? He is waiting with open arms. Waling your faith? God is not interested in placing band-aids on your broken life; He desires to give you a brand new one. Shalom! ABBA, Father God, I believe Your Son Jesus died for me so that I could be forgiven. I believe Your Son Jesus was raised from the dead so that I could have new life. I know I have done wrong things, and I'm sorry. Please forgive me and grant me the power to follow Your Will all the days of my life. Amen.
