Wednesday, August 26 — Psalm 104:1–9
Judges 9:1–33; Luke 20:20–26
You have burdened me with your sins; you have wearied me with your iniquities. I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Isaiah 43:24-25
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight. Colossians 1:21-22 NIV
Before you, great Judge, our sentence was merciless. Because of your great and radical decision, we were rescued from our initial destiny. This new life in you fills our hearts with hope. In your gracious name, we pray. Amen.
