Daily Bread – October 28, 2023 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) 1 Peter 3:12 – …because the Lord’s eyes are upon the righteous and His ears unto their petitions, but the Lord’s face is against evil-doers! The Choice Is Ours We are inundated on every side with things that are both wicked and opposed to God. Our society is gripped with the most vile offenses against God. The Christian community has become a community of unending compromises. If we are not careful, we will be carried away with these influences. We must allow God to define for us how we are to behave and be committed to that way of life. We will not have to rely upon our own failing and wavering human strength, for we will find the strength of the Lord and the power of His might. There are only two choices – we are either righteous and doing that which is good and pleasing to the Lord, or we are doing evil. If we are doing evil, then the Lord has set his face against us. If a person boasts of being an evil doer and still attempts to profess a relationship with God, such a one is deceived (1 John 1:6, 2:9, 3:10, 14-15). God has filled our hearts with that which is good (Matthew 12:35; 2 Corinthians 1:22, 3:3, 4:6; Galatians 4:6; and Hebrews 8:10, 10:16; Ezekiel 36:26). He has poured His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). All we need to do is hunger and thirst for the things of righteousness, and we will be filled to overflowing with every expression of God’s love Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
