DIG for Monday the 3rd of July…..sin covered, transgressions forgiven; that time is now…..Psalm 32 v 1

Much of what we read in the Psalms is prophetic, a time coming when things would come to pass.

One such verse is Psalm 32 v 1.

David is writing about a time when men would be blessed due to what the Lord would do with their sin.

There was a time coming when the transgressions of men would be forgiven.

There was a time coming when the sin of men would be covered, meaning hidden or concealed.

This is of course a blessing; we now live in a time where we are truly blessed.

Through the blood of Jesus we have been forgiven and reconciled to God.

Through the blood of Jesus (and because of forgiveness and reconciliation) all men are truly blessed, as this gives them the opportunity to be saved and made righteous.

All we need to do is make the choice for Jesus, to trust in Him and His finished work and we can truly benefit from the free forgiveness and free reconciliation.

I don’t know about you but this makes me feel truly blessed.

No matter what is going on in my life I can know at all times that I am forgiven and reconciled to God, and that I have been saved and made righteous.

We really do live a blessed life in a blessed time!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that all my sin has been forgiven and all my transgression are hidden”.

Psalm 32 v 1…..Blessed is he whose transgressions is forgiven, whose sin is covered


DIG for Sunday the 2nd of July…..He loved us first…..1 John 4 v 19

I have a good friend who has a really good saying, “The man of law boasts about his love for God, the man of grace boasts about God’s love for him”.

This really impacted me the first time I heard it and it keeps impacting me.

You see, law is all about what you need to do, however grace is all about what God has done.

Law is about us and grace is about God, and what He has done through the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Law is all about religious performance, grace is about Jesus’ performance.

Yes, we obviously need to love God however what we should be boasting about is the love that God has for us.

God does not demand our love, but He does want it.

Why do you think He sent Jesus to die for our sin, why do you think His Son went through what He did?

God loved (and still loves) mankind first, and the wonderful thing is that we get to love Him in return.

The most important thing for us is His love, as this is why we receive what we receive.

We are not healed, accepted and made prosperous because of our love for Him, but through His love for us.

We are healed, accepted and prospered through grace, not law.

That is why we should be boasting about His love, and not ours!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you loved me first and thank you that you still love me”.

1 John 4 v 19…..We love him, because he first loved us
