"If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared." ESV
We have a tendency to judge ourselves through our own eyes and in comparing ourselves to others. This works for us because we don't seem like such bad people. But, God sees us through His eyes, in total truth and reality. Quite a different view. If He dealt out to us what we deserve, we would be condemned and hopeless. However, He made a way for us to be forgiven , through Jesus Christ, who took what we really deserve on His own body on the cross. When we grasp this wonderful news, we can never stop honoring and thanking Him for his eternal grace and mercy.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for not using the right measuring system to that would reveal the truth about ourselves. Help us to stay in the Light so that we see through Your eyes and always stay on the straight and narrow path that leads us right to You. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
