Today I was reminded of the horrors of sin in Psalm 69. It’s so easy to take sin lightly until you really look at the cross. In this psalm we read the thoughts of the Lord Jesus as He bore my sin and it’s punishment. God’s judgment for my sin was like an ocean in which He was drowning.
Save me, O God, For the waters have threatened my life.
Jesus chose to endure such horrors for me! The perfect spotless Lamb of God! I’m so thankful that Jesus bore both my sin and the punishment. I’m thankful today to have a fresh reminder of the horrible nature of sin. This reminder will help me live for God today!
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
