Here’s a fav part in the reading this week for me…
One of the most comforting verses I’ve ever read is 2 Peter 2:7-9. ‘…and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,’.
Again and again over the years this verse has come to me when it has appeared hopeless or it seems someone is just too hardened,… it is so comforting to know how God sought out His own child who was far from where they should be and literally pulled them to safety with bare hands despite their sinful ways. And then has the audacity to declare Lot, a man full of wicked choices, righteous! He wasn’t declared righteous because of anything but that God wished him to be so, and kept him safe from the judgement the whole city rightly received.
That’s how God cares for His children.
That’s how much my righteousness depends on me.
GLORY, we have a merciful God!
