Today's Encouragement: "What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth." (1 Cor. 3:5-7) I don’t know about you, but I tend to think about my sins quite a bit. Repentance is always needed. Forgiveness and God’s grace are vital truths and realities in my life! These verses above remind me that every “Bible Hero” also struggled with sin. What glorious psalms the murderous David wrote. What a sermon Peter preached in Acts 2 after denying Jesus earlier in that month. “The truth is there’s only one untainted hero of the Bible — that’s Jesus. Everyone else needs him.To focus on the Bible’s human heroes without mentioning the grace of God that enabled their heroism or overcame their flaws, warps the biblical message.” This gives me great hope that God uses me and can use you too!
