Jeremiah 14:7 KJV
O Lord , though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name’s sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.
In a time when a number of orthodox churches are undergoing a period of fasting, prayers and alms-giving, in preparation towards Easter, it is not out of place to take a few pointers from Jeremiah, on sin
In this verse Jeremiah gave the sins you and I commit human attributes. Just like a man would stand in court to accuse or defend another, our iniquities stand before the LORD.
We live in a time where we easily overlook the petty sins we commit. I dare to say that until most of us step into church to pray, we never really atone for our sins with the blood. In this wise, it stands to reason that ‘No sin can be trivialised or can be just be wished away.’
They have the tendency to stand before the LORD to accuse us and bear a true testimony against us. This calls for the need to plead for His blood on DAILY basis. Have you done that today?
Have a blessed day.
