way back on Calvary;

Scripture:


Today's Study on the Blood of Jesus Christ:

4 - Come, let's talk this over! 

Isaiah 1
16. Oh, wash yourselves!
Be clean!
Let me no longer see you doing all these wicked things;
quit your evil ways.
17. Learn to do good, to be fair and to help the poor, the fatherless, and widows.
18. Come, let's talk this over! says the Lord; no matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you white as wool!

All through the Bible it is evident that God's holiness cannot stand the sinful human condition.
Does that turn God off where we are concerned?
Yes and No.

It does not turn Him off of us because He loves us dearly. When He made us, He put a quality in us that He is unable to turn away from.
The problem is that He cannot tolerate sin in His presence: God is holy.

What do You do when the very people You love, are sinful and so offend Your holiness that You cannot have them approach You in their sinful state?

You do something about the sin, so that it is no longer a problem and You can have fellowship with those You love.

God did something about our sin: Jesus came into the human condition and, at great cost to Himself, shed His blood on the cross, so that our sins could be dealt with once and for all and God can now allow us to approach Him.

But the problem is that some of us still don't want to discuss our sinful condition with the Lord and in today's reading from Isaiah, God says this is exactly what we must do to clear the air between us and Him on an individual basis.

The blood of Jesus can only cleanse the sin-stains in our lives that we are willing to talk over with God. Talk over means confess and move away from.

Do you mean I must talk over every little sin with God before I can move away from it?
As long as it bothers your conscience, YES!


Prayer:
Father, I've been hiding some of my offences against You instead of admitting them and coming to talk them over with You, so You can apply the blood of Jesus to them and I can move on and have fellowship with You.
Forgive me for my foolish attitude.
Today I want to be honest with You and leave all the pretence behind,
in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
Amen. 

Tomorrow:

See you again tomorrow,
God willing,
when we'll have a new thought
from the Word of God to encourage you!
