“I can’t believe I did that.” Or “I can’t be he did that” (or she). Many people feel the weight of guilt and shame over things that they did that they can’t believe. They feel the hopelessness of brokenness in their own lives and relationships. They feel lost and abandoned by God. They wonder if there is any grace for them. Of course, some people never get to this point. They sin without ever realizing how bad it is. They live blindly in much need of grace without even knowing it. The good news of Grace at Work is that there is always more grace. As God has said in his word, “Where sin increases, grace increases much more.” From the work of grace in confronting us in our sin all the way to the work of grace in restoring our soul, grace comes when and where we need it most. It doesn’t always look like we think it should, but it meets us at our greatest point of need and draws us back to God. Today we see grace at work in the life of someone who did something disgusting to most people. He made it worse by adding more sins to it. He paid a heavy price for it. But grace was still at work because of God. This grace from an old story reminds us of a much needed daily lesson—that grace works even in our disgusting sins.
Treason is one of the greatest enemies of any community. Whether it's a nation or a family or a relationship, betrayal cuts deep. It can cause one to question everything and to become despairing and hurt. Today, we see how one of the great instances of betrayal in the Bible still reveals that grace is at work.
Grace is always at work. Even one of the most revered figure in all of religious history, the man called Father Abraham, needed the grace of God. Today, we see how God's grace comes to us and changes us for his glory and our good.
We live in a sex-saturated world. Yet we are called by God to fulfill God's purposes with our sexuality. As a result, we are faced with a great struggle to live lives that are pure before God. Yet we must fight the fight that God has called us to so that we can walk in holiness before him.
