January 15 Devotional

The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.

They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
Psalm 14:2-3

What does God do in response to the wickedness of men? He sent his unique Son into the world to save wicked men and women. What a marvel!

How will you respond to others sin against you today? Pray and resolve to respond in the same way God responds to our sin, with an eye towards the cross of Jesus! Remember that but for the grace of God in the cross, you would receive the full weight of God’s wrath for your sin. But because Jesus bore the wrath you deserve, there can be no personal wrath for you to pour out on other’s sin.
