In the Bible, the Moabitess is forbidden from being in the gathering of the faithful … yet it records the marriage of Ruth to Boaz, a union through which Christ the Saviour descended. We see in Christ, a mercy that is unfathomable. In the covenant we are saved through our faith in Christ Jesus, and because we love Him, we obey Him who first loved us with an everlasting love and is able to forgive all our confessed transgressions …even work through them for greater good. We flee sin because of God’s love for us … our realization that He loves us will bring us always back to Him.
This does not mean the law for us is cancelled … but our new nature is programmed by God not to disobey it … our instincts embrace obedience to God, unlike our previous nature which ran to sin with zeal. Where we have confessed and repented the pride that caused us to drift from His will, we can through Christ assume a cleansing, a new slate …our justification before God. This is the blessing of the saints of God through Christ Jesus alone … as for others, the wages of sin remains an everlasting death.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, keep me in your grace and love. Amen
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts. I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
