Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16
Verse 5: Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
These words remind me today of God’s control and goodwill. God created me, but knows I am not without sin. He promises to forgive these sins if I follow Him and accept Him as my savior. This is how I can be redeemed, made worthy again. It sounds easy enough, but I know there are challenges. Along with accepting Christ goes accepting His teachings....and accepting His example. I can’t really say I am redeemed if I know I am not following Christ’s example. If I accept Christ, I accept everything about Him.
Dear Lord, help me to follow you and your teachings every day. Allow me to remember in every situation, to do the right thing. It is my responsibility to be worthy of redemption. Amen
