Day Seven – All Creation Convicts Us of Sin

Like a sidewalk card shark, the sin at work in us wants to distract us from what should be the point of focus. Rather than see the sin that entangles us, it points toward others, outlying situations and draws us to play the victim. Instead of this quick trick of the heart, we should see that the pain, sin and struggle in the world around us (and in those we might blame for our own problems) points toward that same sin struggle within ourselves.

There is only one answer for that hurt: the mercy and grace of God through Jesus Christ.
