“We and Our Fathers Have Sinned”
Read Psalm 106
In the exodus God worked his mightiest act of salvation. But Israel’s part in it was ignominious; at the crisis she was rebellious, obdurate and without either intelligence or faith. The people offered God nothing but their sin; God responded with an invincible grace.
PRAYER: Father, the more I realize the depth and deviousness of my sin, the more I realize the persistence and power of your grace. How I thank you for coming to me in salvation in Jesus Christ! Amen.
