Pause

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

John Newton in “Amazing Grace” (1779)

Consider today: God is searching for you. Grace awaits.

Listen

Have mercy on me, God, according to your faithful love! Wipe away my wrongdoings according to your great compassion! Wash me completely clean of my guilt; purify me from my sin! Because I know my wrongdoings, my sin is always right in front of me.

Psalm 51:1-3

Think

Over the past few weeks, I dealt with a toe infection. At first, doctor after doctor misdiagnosed it, from diabetes to a sprain. However, after searching and searching, I found a doctor who could finally help me and prescribe the right medicine.

So, what about the cure for sin? We all do wrong sometimes, right? But who can help us with it? As we see in Psalm 51, there is one answer, and that answer is God, who loves us with faithfulness and compassion. Only God can cure us of sin, just like the right doctor cured my toe.

But there’s one big difference. I had to go search for the right doctor; the physician did not try to find me. As we will see in this week’s devotions, God is searching for us, seeking us out to forgive us of our sins. So friends, be assured that your wrongdoings are wiped away and be at peace. God is looking to help you, and that’s a good thing.
