Every day you and I are faced with a choice. We can cling to our sin, or we can come to Jesus for cleansing and forgiveness. We can hold tightly to our pride, or we can let repentance produce fruit in our lives (Matthew 3:8).
When we choose to come to Him, our lives become useful and productive in His hands. And that, my friend, gives us reason to celebrate!
Prayer: Lord, in Your mercy reveal any areas of sin in my life. Point out the places where I am clinging to my pride. Show me where I want to be in charge and I am refusing to let go. Pry open my heart. Cleanse me. Help me turn to follow You. Make my life useful and productive for You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
