As thousands of people crowded together, so that they were stepping on each other, Jesus said first to his disciples, “Be on guard against the yeast of the Pharisees—I mean their hypocrisy. Whatever is covered up will be uncovered, and every secret will be made known. So then, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in broad daylight, and whatever you have whispered in private in a closed room will be shouted from the housetops.” Luke 12:1-3, GNB.
No one lives a life without mistakes and regrets. We need to say sorry to Jesus for our sin and recognize the needs of those we may have hurt. One of the highest ranking church leaders in our country has much to think about as he will now be in jail for actions in the past. We should pray for him and for those who have suffered as a result of his conduct.
Well then, are we Jews in any better condition than the Gentiles? Not at all! I have already shown that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. As the Scriptures say: “There is no one who is righteous, no one who is wise or who worships God. All have turned away from God; they have all gone wrong; no one does what is right, not even one.” Romans 3:9-12.
I feel we have all let God down and without the grace of God we are eternally lost.
“Accept one another, then, for the glory of God, as Christ has accepted you.” Romans 15:7.
Please show grace and forgiveness to others just as Christ has shown to us.
