What God Wrote in Stone 14: Sunday Selah

What God Wrote in Stone Day 14 – Sunday Selah

For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself. (1 Corinthians 11:29, NLT)

As we go to worship today with our church families, we must first spend time repenting of our sin. We’ve looked at the commandments God wrote in stone over the past two weeks, and in them, we’ve revealed our inability to live perfect lives. Had it not been for Jesus, we would have no hope to ever be reconciled to a holy and perfect God. God sent His Son to open the way for each of us to be clean and pure before Him, and by accepting His work on the cross, we can be free from the sin that separates us from God.

But each week, we find we still struggle against our flesh, and so we must repent and confess our sins before God so that when we come to worship Him, there is nothing standing between us. Too often, we fail to properly do this. Maybe our sin is so habitual and familiar that we don’t recognize it like we should. Yet it’s there and it needs to be cleansed for our worship to be pure. When we fail to do this, God will hold us accountable.

Moving forward, our prayer is that we would be people eager to obey God’s Word and live it before others. When we fail, we must make things right before God and those we offend so that we, His followers, accurately represent Him. May we worship with pure hearts—hearts sensitive to the sin that puts distance between us and God. May we seek to follow Him in all that we do and say; may He clearly see our love for Him through our willing obedience.
