You are Invited

Something dreadful had happened to some Galileans and Jesus was told about it by ‘some present’. In response He said to them:

Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Luke 13:2-3

Today you are invited to consider people’s behaviour. All are sinners. Are some worse than others because of the quantity/darkness of the sins they commit? Are some better than others because they just commit little sins? Stuff we dismiss with a shrug, accepting such acts as ‘normal’, ‘human’, ‘everyday misdemeanours’? Will some of the people you know slide into heaven because they have never done anything really bad in their lives? Is sin a variant? Or is sin, sin? What does Scripture say? John the Baptist cried ‘Repent!’ When did you last repent? When did you last confess, or hear a confession for sin committed? What sin do you commit as an ‘everyday misdemeanour’? What do you want to say to God as a result of this consideration? What does He reply to you?

May God bless you with His assurance of forgiveness as you confess and repent any sin He prompts you to name before Him today.
