Words of the Week

Friday's contemplation words, from reformatus.hu, and the commentary, translated from Hungarian. It was really hitting close to home this time:

Psalms, 78:32-42.
For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous
Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in
When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and
enquired early after God.
And they remembered that God was their rock,
the high God their redeemer.
Nevertheless they did flatter him with
mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
For their heart
was not
right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
he, being
full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them
not: yea, many a
time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his
For he
remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth
away, and cometh not
How oft did they provoke him in the
wilderness, and grieve him in the
Yea, they turned back and
tempted God, and limited the Holy One of
They remembered not his
hand, nor the day when he delivered them from
the enemy.

It is one of the most difficult things in our lives of our faith to look back on our sins. There are those who like to elaborate in great details, who like to boast how deep was the chasm they came back from, how deep they fell before the were saved. Others, even if they know that they received forgiveness, cannot let go of their sins and carry them as weights through their life. The history of our sins is important only because through them we can see the faithful love of God more and more. It does not matter how far we strayed, God is ready to start it over with us.
