Celebrate Recovery – April 16

by Apr 16, 2020Celebrate Recovery

O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me (Ps. 139.1). If we believe that then we should know that the lies we tell ourselves about our sins are useless.  Not to be cliché, but at the end of the day, what this verse tells us is that we can lie to ourselves and we can lie to each other, but God knows “everything about” us.  But, here’s the cool part.  The pressure’s off.  Jesus, even knowing everything about us, still went to the cross for us!  He took all of our lies, our cheats, our crap, on Himself so that we could stand before God, the maker of the universe, CLEAN!  This week’s CR drives us to take an inventory of ourselves.  Not because God requires we tell Him what we did, He knows what we did.  But, when we get to a place where we can lay bare the junk we have in our hearts, only then can we be ready to accept the truth – that we can’t wash away our own sin, but we can accept God’s free gift of Grace!
