God’s word is alive! Like a surgeon’s scalpel can cut to bone and tendon, God’s word exposes us. Our thoughts and motives are known by God. This can be good or bad. It’s good because people can misunderstand your motive and criticize you, but God knows your heart. It is bad for someone who wants to hide their desires and sins from God, because he knows them.
I’m so thankful for Jesus who knows us and yet loves us. He has faced what we have faced without sin. Be encouraged! Jesus will plead your case before the Father and YOU can be forgiven by our merciful and gracious God.
