The scripture for today, July 11 (7/11), is Matthew 7:11 as found in the New Testament of the Bible.
Yes, we are evil. Evil and sin mean the same thing. Let’s face it: If we are sinful, then we are evil. Hard to think of ourselves that way. Could we do nice things to someone who did bad things to us every day? God can. God does. He is the God of the impossible. The God who absorbs the black hole of sin and brings light into it, not to reveal it but to forgive it.
The Creator of the Universe our Father? The master-mind behind the intricacies of our bodies our Father? The Creator of over two trillion galaxies (not stars, but galaxies of stars) our Father? The one who occupies the tiniest atom our Father? The One who can be everywhere at once our Father?
How unworthy we are. All we can do is fall at his feet and whisper, “You are so great. I am so small. I am overwhelmed by your love.”
PAUL: THE UNSTOPPABLE called himself a violent man, and that he was. He imprisoned, tortured, and executed people for believing in Jesus. Then he switched sides. So overwhelmed was he for God’s ability to forgive him, he endured beatings, slashings, storms, floods, hunger, shipwrecks, and each time he cried out, “Jesus! This is for you!” To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this: https://amzn.to/2SHeQPg
