Sunday, July 30th: Psalms 51-53; Romans 2 ~ Emma

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalms 51-53; Romans 2

"Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God?" Romans‬ ‭2‬:‭3‬

Whoa, reality check. It's often easy to look down on non-Christians just because they sin differently then us. All sin is equal in God's eyes and we all need His mercy and grace the same. The only difference between us and non-Christians is that we have found Christ sooner than them. We need to not be so quick to judge, especially when we are just as guilty.

Romans 2:13
For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight.

A good reminder, as we're about to go to church. I need to apply God's word to my daily life and decisions.

The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God. Psalm 51:17

And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life. Romans 2:16

Many great reminders in todays reading that knowing the Law and acting it out are two totally different things. I pray that my heart and actions will reflect the words that come from my mouth.
