Daily Delight

Monday, January 8, 2018

I recently ordered a new pair of glasses. As I put them on for the first time, I was disoriented, had trouble focusing, and seemed dizzy. This wasn’t the clear image I was used to seeing outside of my lenses. I finally figured out my prescription had increased, meaning my eyesight had gotten worse at my last exam. This small change, while it seemed insignificant on paper, created a very significant change in my eyesight. I can’t help but relate this to how we view sin. 

As humans, we can agree we all have flaws. We are imperfect people in an imperfect world.

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” -Romans 3:23 (NLT) 

Often we continue engaging in sin for selfish reasons and think, "What can this hurt? There are surely worse things I could do. I’m young, this is just normal for my age."

Has anyone ever had or said one of these thoughts? Most likely, your answer is yes. The scary part is, we sometimes can’t see how sin can negatively affect the big picture—our lives and our future. But there is good news, sisters. 

Please remember—we are not alone in our sin and we all struggle. 

Yet God . . . through Christ Jesus . . . freed us from the penalty for our sins.” 
-Romans 3:24 (NIV) 

We deserve death, but we were redeemed. Christ died on a cross for each and every one of us. We can be set free from any sin we are facing. Although it may not be easy, God can set our eyes, and lives, back in focus.
