Convo with Pastor - Leviticus 5:15

When any of you commit a trespass
and sin unintentionally ...
Leviticus 5:15
 
We all sin. As Paul tells us in Romans 3:23, we all have sinned and we all fall short of the glory of God.
 
We sin intentionally and unintentionally.
 
We sin in our thoughts, words, and deeds.
 
We sin by what we've done and by what we've left undone.
 
We sin.
 
Aren't you glad that God forgives what you do intentionally, unintentionally, through our actions, and though our failures? Aren't you glad that God justifies us by his amazing grace?
 
Today's devotion is simple: While a little confession right now wouldn't be a bad idea, mostly give thanks for God's unlimited generosity.
 
In Christ's Love,
an unintentional mess
who is intentionally grateful
--------------------------------
Overheard: We're all a mess ... that's why we need a Mess-iah!!

In a bible study I go to, we were talking about forgiveness and the act of being constantly aware of how we handled situations, spoke to people, reacted, etc.  Then we are encouraged to immediately ask for forgiveness.  This can be very humbling and also increase awareness of just how much we need God's grace.
