Guilty or innocent?

The appointment of Judge Bret Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court has brought out some of the best and the worst in our nation. For many, he was judged to have been guilty of sexual misconduct some three decades ago without any proof of the allegations; I can appreciate the pain and shame some women have suffered down through the years from sexual abuse and rape with feelings that no one will listen, care or do anything about it. That’s so demeaning and hateful. Hopefully, as a nation, we can change all of that. In the meantime, our judicial system considers a person innocent until proven guilty. Thank God!

But truth be known, we are all guilty before God of breaking His commandments. The Bible says that there are none who are truly righteous. All have sinned and the wages of sin is death (Romans 3:10, 23; 6:23). We are all flawed and need a Savior. God has demonstrated how much he loves us, in that while we were yet sinners and in rebellion, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). So now, in Christ, there is no longer any condemnation (Romans 8:1). Are you in Christ? Does he live in you? He is waiting for you to invite him in. Think about it!
