Examine, Confess, Receive

Examine, Confess, Receive

July 2

Read: MATTHEW 12:1-8

Take a moment to examine your interactions this week with immediate family, close friends, extended family, acquaintances, co-workers, peers, church members, etc. Asking the Holy Spirit to guide your meditation, consider the following: Have you had any moments of frustration, resentment, or bitterness? Pause and allow time for the Holy Spirit to bring something to mind. As you examine the situation, ask God to reveal to you a greater truth that you may be missing. Confess where you need to. Consider any actions of repentance that need to be acted on. Linger for a moment in receiving God’s grace and forgiveness. Look forward to the day to come, seeking moments when you can extend that same forgiveness to another.

Forgive us, Lord, for the areas in our life where we are valuing legalism over your grace. AMEN.
