Day Seven – Regrets: You can’t live with them

Today’s Scripture: John 8:10-11; 1 Corinthians 6:10-11; 2 Corinthians 7:10 Yesterday we considered what it means to forgive ourselves for past sins. Forgiveness is one thing. But, regretting what we’ve done is another. Every one of us has done something we regret. We wish we could go back and redo an action or take back our words. Maybe a sin[…]

Day Six – Forgiving Yourself

Today’s Scripture: Luke 23:34; Acts 7:60; 1 John 4:17-18 Have you ever heard someone say, “I know God has forgiven me, but I just can’t forgive myself”? What causes a person to have such a mindset? True forgiveness is a magnificent thing. It goes beyond overlooking the wrongdoing. Forgiveness includes the release of punishment. When Jesus forgave those who crucified[…]

Day Five – Judgment Day!

Today’s Scripture: John 8:7; Isaiah 43:25; Habakkuk 3:2 One of the great “unknowns” about eternity is what judgment day will be like. Will all our past actions be judged? What about the sins we’ve confessed? Will those be brought up? Some Christians are extremely stressed over giving an account for everything they’ve done, especially if they’ve repented and the Lord[…]

That’s a scary thought, isn’t it? It would help if we learned to judge ourselves[…]

Day Three – What’s the worse sin?

Today’s Scripture: Matthew 23:1-33; John 8:9; John 3:18; Hebrews 11:6 Some people like to categorize sins, putting murder or gross immorality at the top of the list. Which is worse—committing adultery or living with pride? Murdering a person or unfairly judging someone else’s sins? Internal sins like arrogance or judgmentalism are often ignored or go unnoticed, since those sins don’t[…]

Day Two – It’s about being teachable

Today’s Scripture: John 8:2-5; Leviticus 20:10; Matthew 5:27-30 For those of you have ever taught a class or led a workshop, how frustrating do you find it when people come into your session late? It’s tolerable if one person sheepishly enters and slips into the back row to keep from disturbing the rest of the class. Imagine a group of[…]

Day One – Condemner or condemnee?

Today’s Scripture: John 8:1-11 Condemnation is not a good thing, but, unfortunately, it’s a real thing. I’ve learned something through personal experience: People who are quick to condemn the wrong-doings of others are often guilty of the same or similar offense themselves. Sadly, too many times I’ve been quick to judge others while I ignored flaws in my own life.[…]
