Yesterday we talked about Grace at Work in our disgusting sins by looking at the life of David the king who did the unthinkable sin of committing adultery and killing another man to cover it up. We saw how grace begins with the confrontation of our sins and ends with the restoring of our souls. Today, as you embark on a new week, I encourage you to remember that no sin in your past is bigger than God’s grace.

Remember Psalm 51:1.

Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness;

According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.

Take hope in the fact that God’s forgiveness is based on his lovingkindness and the greatness of his compassion. That should give us incredible hope because God’s love is greater than all our sins.

Do not fall into the deception of thinking that God needs more than Christ’s death to forgive you.

As you confess sin, grace is at work in you to restore your soul and give you fresh hope.

Your past is not your master. God’s grace can rule in our hearts.
