But for the grace of God go I.
1. Today's passage: Luke 18:9-14

19. Then Jesus told this story to some who had great confidence in their own righteousness and scorned everyone else:
10. "Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a despised tax collector.
11. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: 'I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else. For I don't cheat, I don't sin, and I don't commit adultery. I'm certainly not like the tax collector!
12. I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.'
13. "But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, 'O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.'
14. I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned to home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." Luke 18:9-14
2. Let's read this passage 5 times before we leave this page.
It is not long.
3. May I pray for this community?
This passage is a reminder.
Let us not forget that sin is sin. Not one sin can come into your presence.
So, all of us are apart from you without your Son's pure blood shed on the cross for that sin.
Thank you Abba, for sending your Son.
Thank you Jesus for coming.
Thank you Holy Spirit for staying with us.
Thank you God for loving us that much.
In Jehoshua's Name
I lift this prayer up.
