Were You Right With Me Today?

This last week has offered a number of distractions, some of them joyful, some not so pleasant. And in the midst of it I have been struggling to find what I am suppose to share for W omen's Prayer Breakfast.

Much to my relief last night, God gave me the direction He wanted me to teach on in the form of this question, “Were you right with me today?”

Wow, what a question. For myself I would like to be able to say without hesitation, yes Lord, I have walked without sin on this day.

But have I? Have I found myself free of jealousy, resentment, bitterness and all the other unsavory things that so easily stick to a person in this world?

Honestly I haven't. I struggle with all of the emotions and attitudes that come at me daily, moment by moment. Like pesky mosquitoes I try to swat them all away but to no avail, I get bit pretty good by the ones that I didn't notice.

And then I am an unholy mess until I look to the Lord and get it straightened out by the only one who can make me clean again.

I am not fooling myself. I know most of my shortcomings, and that list is uncomfortably long. So, when I think on these words, ”Were you right with me today?”I feel shame in knowing that I couldn't even make it through a day without sin.

And then I reflect upon these verses:

(Rom 8:1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

(Rom 8:2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

(Rom 8:3) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

(Rom 8:4) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

I believe the question is asked not as a judgment but as a reminder of the need to walk straight, and to not be captured in the pit of sorrow and despair but of repentance and life.








If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
