One of my favorite things about watching sporting events from home is the benefit of instant replay. Through the magic of technology you can review specific plays from various angles; and with commentary!
The only down side to this is that the bad plays seem to get more attention than the good plays. Drop a ball, miss a pass, commit a foul… and it’s all there on the screen over and over and over again.
I’m so glad it’s not that way with God. When we screw up royally, when we sin, all we need to do is admit it to God and accept His forgiveness.
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. ~ ! John 1:8-10
The world will watch our every move and replay our every mistake without mercy. But it’s not that way with God!
