His Wisdom

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”   1 John 1:8-10 TNIV

Just a poetic response to His word this week.

A world tucked under a dark blanket
Of half-truths and manipulation and pride
Of pain and hardship and striving
How can we think we are good?
We are wrapped up and tangled
In need of rescue—
But who can save this lot?

God, in wisdom higher than man,
Saw fit to send His Son, God incarnate
That we confessing—ALL
(Our lack of trust, our selfish ways, our fear,
The ways we’ve hurt, the ways we’re hurting
The secrets of our dark heart)
OUR SIN—are purified by His blood.

For relationship.
For new life.
For grace and peace.
For freedom.
Living hope that Christ over death is victorious.
Proclaiming Good News to those who are still lost.
All to the glory of God.

Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we confess our sin, trusting in His promise to forgive us and purify us for His glory.
