Our only hope is that our holy Creator shows regard for us because of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. In ourselves, we are not deserving of the Lord’s blessing. In fact, we deserve only God’s wrath. But if we approach our Creator through Jesus Christ, we can have confidence that He will bless us. Out of love for us, God satisfied His wrath against us by offering Jesus, the willing substitute, in our place. Let us meditate on that great truth this day.
