But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
Wow, what a Scripture to ponder! The verse is referring to God noticing all the build up of sin and disobedience in the hearts and lives of Israel, and He, out of compassion, NOT destroying them, and instead forgiving them as they cried out to Him for grace! Well, THAT’S our God, and He LOVES to have compassion on unworthy, and even ungodly creatures such as us! And he has enough grace and mercy for a whole planet of sinners, amen?!
Well, that’s what this month’s Mission’s Conference is all about – Compassion, and caring about a world that doesn’t care about God or righteousness! Thankfully, God cares, and the more we hear of the spiritual needs around the world, so do God’s people!
I am so looking forward to this coming Sunday thru Wednesday with our World Evangelism Conference! Be here for EVERY meeting – the devil will work overtime to keep you too busy, but the value of just one soul is worth every sacrifice you might have to make!
Please remember to pray for our church folks, and all our families! Be sure to invite them out to church for any and all of the upcoming events! Please know that I love you and pray for you! The Lord is worthy of all our worship!
