Weekly Devotional Thoughts
Can God use sinners? Most of us would quickly say yes and we would be correct. But what if we apply the question to ourselves? Would we just as quickly answer yes? Most of us have no trouble accepting that God can use people who are emotionally or spiritually injured except when we look at ourselves. For some reason we seem to think that our sins are somehow much more grievous than our neighbors.
The Bible gives us some examples of people who committed some very serious sins but where still loved and used by God. Moses killed a man. King David committed adultery and compounding that initial sin, he also had a man murdered. Abraham lied about his wife on a couple of different occasions showing he didn’t trust God. Peter not only was called Satan by Jesus but he also denied Jesus three times. Peter and Paul had short fuses. Each of these individuals had some major flaws and yet God not only forgave them he still used them.
The same holds true for all of us. We may be flawed but God still wants us. Too many times we concentrate on our short comings instead of our gifts. God will use us in spite of who we think we are. It is God who justifies and forgives. I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (NRSV) Psalm 103:12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.” (NRSV) Jeremiah 31:34b, “…for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.” (NRSV) Since God forgives us, shouldn’t we grant ourselves that same forgiveness?
Forgiveness is never an easy thing to accept especially when it concerns us personally. Forgiveness is the healing hand of God at work in our lives. Let God heal you by accepting his forgiveness and then by living in the grace God has granted you.
A Message of Welcome From All Saints Lutheran Church
Hi! My name is Pastor Brian George and I want to extend a warm invitation to you to come join us here at All Saints Lutheran Church. Our Mission is to know, Serve, and Promote Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education and outreach. Here at All Saints Church we see ourselves as the center of spiritual growth where God is praised and his loving message is proclaimed through worship and music that is energizing, inspiring and uplifting. Worship and music inspires the worship participant to be blessed so that they become a blessing to others. At All Saints a warm and loving welcome is extended to all and everyone belongs. Our congregation is growing larger and smaller at the same time; meaning you can always find your place here in one of our smaller groupings. At All Saints we grow spiritually through daily devotions by being a part of a small group and by giving and sharing our blessings with others. At All Saints we discover our God-given gifts and are inspired to use them. Here at All Saints we are known on the community grapevine for being a congregation that reaches inward in ministry and reaches outward in mission. We are “The Church With Open Arms!"
