“Let all those be ashamed who serve graven images, who boast themselves of idols; worship Him, all you gods. Zion heard this and was glad, and the daughters of Judah have rejoiced because of Your judgments, O Lord.” (Psalm97:7-8)


The problem with sin today is that it has no shame. Shame brings guilt and guilt declares the sinner wrong. Those who are in the Lord have their sin removed when they live in repentance and walk humbly before the Lord. Be glad, because the Lord is perfectly just and His righteousness is granted to those who dwell in Zion, the redeemed of the Lord. Worship the Lord above all.

Lord, I have guilt and there are times I have no shame. Guide me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go. You know where I need to go. I do not. Help me, O Lord, to see in You the hope of glory, and know that You are God above all other things. Teach me how to worship and lead me in the way of worship. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of eternal life that I may dwell in Zion.

Lord Jesus, You have come that the problem of sin and guilt may be dealt with. In You alone is the hope of all people. You are the One who has made grace possible. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of eternal peace that I may walk humbly with You my Lord and my God. Lead me in worship, praise and gratitude that I may now and always live into the life to which You have called me. Amen.
