Pensamientos sobre el Verso de Hoy

Cuando el pueblo de Dios reconoció la profundidad de su pecado y el castigo por venir, se arrepintieron pidiendo su ayuda. Desafortunadamente, muchas veces nos escondemos o rehusamos a reconocer nuestro pecado, lejos de confesarlo y rechazarlo. "No es para tanto. Hay cosas peores." No debemos ver la confesión como una debilidad o humillación. Reconocer nuestro pecado y pedir el perdón de Dios nos permite limpiarnos de toda mancha y abrir nuestra puerta para que Dios utilice todo su poder sobre nosotros.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When God's people realized the depth of their sin and the impending punishment by God, they repented and asked for his help. They didn't try to diminish the gravity of their sin. Instead, they threw themselves on the mercy of the LORD and his graciousness. Unfortunately today, we often hide, avoid, rationalize, deny, and skirt the seriousness our personal sin. We don't like to admit it, much less confess it and turn from it. "It's not really all that bad. I know a lot of folks who do a lot worse things than I did." We must not view confession of sin as humiliation or weakness. Acknowledging our sin and asking for God's forgiveness, cleansing, and power open the door for him to use us mightily if we will look to him for our rescue!
