Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus' description of himself "I am the Good Shepherd" (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: "To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs." (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Own Up to Guilt

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the Lord God said unto the woman,
What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, “The serpent
beguiled me, and I did eat.”

Genesis 3:12, 13
Where sin is concerned, there is no difference between men and women.
Both are equally quick to pass off their guilt. This, too, is a
favourite tactic the enemy uses against believers. God is always
interested in honest confession, repentance and complete forgiveness,
but satan only wants us to point the finger in endless blame games that
combine guilt and shame with the sins of being a false witness and
judging one another.

Once God heard what Adam and Eve had to say, He dealt with each party
to the sin one by one. In Genesis 3:15, God began His judgment with the
father of lies and spoke prophetically that satan’s head would be
bruised by Eve’s seed (God’s seed in Jesus Christ). He told the devil
what was coming, but since satan has been stripped of his anointing, he
has also been stripped of his ability to receive revelation. He heard
what God said but didn’t have the revelation to fully understand the
plans of God.

Woman was deceived, but man made a wrong decision knowingly. Eve’s
error took womankind down a step in the social order and in physical
safety and comfort until Jesus restored her to her original position.
Adam’s sin took all mankind-male and female-straight to the grave. Once
again, it took the Son of God Himself to bring us to a glorious
resurrection.

Prayer for Today

Father,
You know me inside and out-You know everything about me. Thank You for
looking at me with love and forgiveness and for bringing Your truth and
light into all areas of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Think on These Things

Genesis 4:10-12
2 Samuel 12:9-12

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
