December 13-Written Records
Scripture Lesson: Psalm 130:1-4
On this date in 2007 with a winning bid of $100,000.00, a collection of rare written documents including personal letters and cancelled checks concerning the Chicago Black Sox scandal is procured by the Chicago History Museum. The historical papers offer new details about the White Sox allegedly fixing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds.
Aren’t we glad that God does not keep records of our sins as the Psalmist reminds us. For when we confess our sins to God, he erases the record of that sin as if it never existed! None of us could stand up to having all our sins kept up with in a written record. Praise be to God that He gave the life of His Son for the payment for our sins and keeps no record of sins we have confessed to Him. Forgiveness is indeed wonderful, may we never forget the cost!
1. What are the sins we need to confess to Him today?
2. What did it cost God for us to receive forgiveness?
3. How does it make you feel that God keeps no record of our confessed sins? Why?
Take a few moments right now to thank God for paying the price for our sins and for not keeping a record of our sins!
