BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.? Isaiah 1:18
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Every rebel has a reason for his or her actions. You?ve probably heard a young person say, ?Well, my dad drinks, so I smoke pot.? Do you know what kind of reasoning that isí Brute beast reasoning, like Peter mentions in 2 Peter 2:12. This young person doesn?t think he has to obey his father. And he further reasons, ?Well, he?s not worthy of my obedience.? Do you know the only people who can demand perfect parentsí Perfect children. The only person who can demand a perfect pastor is a perfect church member. The only person who can demand a perfect politician is a perfect citizen! There is never a license for rebellion. There are ways to reason together in a church, home, and government. A spirit of rebellion will bring a nation to its knees.
ACTION POINT: Read 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” Jesus gave His life for you. Ask yourself what you should do in response. Now, go do it!
