Judgement

Yet another slew of those crazy if-you-love-Jesus-forward-this-and-don’t-be-ashamed-to-stand-up-for-what’s-right forwards have arrived at my email inbox recently.  They are the kind that point out a hurricane or a tornado or wildfire and tie it to some sin or wickedness in the area and how it is proof of God’s judgement against a group of people or an area of the country.

2 O Lord, hear my voice.
       Let your ears be attentive
       to my cry for mercy.

 3 If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,
       O Lord, who could stand?

 4 But with you there is forgiveness;
       therefore you are feared.

Psalm 130. 2-4 NIV

And with great humility I bow my face, knowing it is by the great grace of God that I have not been carried to justice for my own sin in a forceful, cleansing  judgement-tsunami, never to be revived.  Grace happens.
