Bible reading today: Micah 5-7, Psalm 68: 19-35, Proverb 13, John 12

Today’s scripture verse:  Isaiah 59:2   But your iniquities are separating you from your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not listen.

This condemnation and separation from God that sin has caused is very real. The apostle Paul when writing to the Ephesian believers explained to them that before they became Christians they were separated from Christ, and without God in their lives, and in a hopeless state. This description is as valid today as it was when written by the apostle 2000 years ago.  As gentiles we were forever lost, the only people that knew God was the Jew.  Praise be to Jesus and the Grace of God for our salvation.
