Today, marks the 7th day of the forty(40) days of prayer, fasting and alms giving for Spiritual awakening.
Text for reflection is Romans 3:9-12
What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Most people view themselves as ” good sinners”, “honest liars” and and “upright thieves.” These people are far from ready to admit that they are sinners.
Unfortunately they placed righteousness on their Church attendances, financial support to the church, serving as leaders/ founders of churches etc.
The truth is that Our unrighteousness is based on the fact that our actions, feelings and thoughts goes against God’s standards and this cause us to miss the mark or the target.
The Bible states clearly that No one is RIGHTEOUS. In our reflections today note the following;
- All Human Beings with no exception are under sin
- Sin naturally affect our relationship with God and others
- One need to hear the Good News that has provided a Savior for sin.
You need the Savior to cleanse you and make you whole on the day of Judgment. Please do not wear the shoes of a self- RIGHTEOUS man or woman, we are vile and Jesus can make us clean.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 1:8
Have a blessed day and May the peace of God be with us all.
