Inspirational Thought of the Day:
To think that a Holy God would be ready to forgive the unholy is truly beyond words.
Scriptures of the Day:
“For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.”
“For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.”
“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.”
To think that a Holy God would be ready to forgive the unholy is truly beyond words. That He would make promises to those who cannot keep them and fulfill them to their children, as well, is absolutely incredible.
But that is just who God is. He is good and there is nothing vile in Him. Nothing. We tend to think of good as getting our way or being blessed. But the definition of good as it refers to God is not like that.
God’s holiness is hard for us to fathom. We can explore analogies to try and comprehend what is must be like to be 100% pure, but it is beyond us.
Perfect King of kings, enthroned in His majesty, cloud filling the temple, chose to leave His throne and rescue His creation by dying for them. We defied His words, disobeyed His commands, were ungrateful enemies. And He set His love on us. He is good.
Lord, thank You for redeeming us from the grave and setting us free from the sin that destroys us. You are good, righteous, Holy, perfect, beautiful.
