Scripture for the day:

Psalms 36:1-4 The sin of the evil-doer says in his heart, There is no fear of the Lord before his eyes. 2 For he takes comfort in the thought that his sin will not be uncovered and hated. 3 In the words of his mouth are evil and deceit; he has given up being wise and doing good. 4 He gives thought to evil on his bed; he takes a way which is not good; he is not a hater of evil. (BBE)

Thought for the day

Learn how to love people like God and become a hater of the sin in your life. Romans 3:21-26 verse 23 “all have sinned” and 1 John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, we lie to ourselves and the truth is not in us.” (NLV) [read Ecclesiastes 7:20; Galatians 3:19-25 (key verse: 22); 1 John 1:5-10 (key verses: 8-10); James 3:1-12 (key verse: 2)]

Paul explains it in Romans 7:14-25, notice his statement at the end of verse 15 “but what I hate is the very thing I do.” (RKJNT) [read Jude 17-23(23); Zechariah 3:1-7 (3-5)]. He acknowledged and spoke of the sin in his life. Are you able to do the same?

Like it or not I use God’s word to point you to the truth :-). I have learned to be a sin nature hater, but lover of all people with the love of God. So, yes, I am a hater of the sinful nature that is first of all within me and the sinful human nature of others, but I am also a lover of people.

The goal is to use the truth, God’s word, to warn my friends and help us learn to hate sin but to love each other without prejudice. My prayer is that you learn to do so in Jesus name and be blessed— Tim.
