Missing the Bumps of Sin

Here is a Happy Thought that will really stick with you. When I caught sight of it; it blessed me all day long. It should be a happy thought and bless you too. Acts 3:26 says, "When God raised up his servant (Jesus), he sent him first to you to BLESS YOU by turning each of you from your wicked ways".

WOW, WHAT A BLESSING.

What would l have been like if God hadn't sent Jesus and raised him from the dead? What multitude of sins might I be in today? If it wasn’t for God's love in raising up Jesus; what destitute, degrading situation might I be in now if it wasn't for his concern for my wicked ways.

Thank you, God, for your care for me.

Yes, it is a happy thought to think that because God hates sin so much but He loves me so much that He provided a way to turn me away from my wicked ways. His teachings about what is right and what is wrong are so powerful now that God raised Jesus from the dead. It gives proof of a life after death. It gives evidence of something better to live for rather than living for the here and now.

It points out the reason to make choices that seem to go against the everyday worldly ways of doing things. We don‘t have to have the “I deserve it” attitude or the “do it now” attitude.

We don‘t have to have our cake and eat it too.

Yes, God has provided a way to direct our hearts away from wicked ways and direct them towards the path of righteousness.

Now that is a HAPPY THOUGHT. God is taking GOOD CARE OF US by turning us from our wicked ways.
