My Vision of Morality-Lent 26, 2020

Prayer Focus: No one but God defines morality.

Holy Father, forgive us. It’s not hard to see how we got into the moral mess we’re in. We decided to be our own arbiters of morality instead of looking to the standards You have given us in Your Word. You alone are righteous. You alone are just. You alone can truly distinguish good from evil and are able to declare for us what is right and what is wrong. Forgive us for turning Your standards upside down, looking to a Supreme Court or to a President or to a United Nations or to a pastor or to a psychiatrist to tell us what we ought to do when our conscience is begging us to listen to You. Yes, You are able to give enhanced discernment to Your people wherever they are–whether leadership or right next door. But forgive us for the many times each day when we tell our consciences to go away for a while. Forgive us for thinking we’re owed special treatment by anyone simply for having done what we ought to do out of regard for Your Holy Spirit’s promptings. Teach me of the beauty of black and white living, the awesomeness of absolutes when they come from You, and that many shades of gray aren’t the way Jesus lived and neither should we. Forgive Your Church for our many compromises and capitulations to our culture. We come to You, humbly asking for Your mercy. We are sinners and You alone are God. With tremendous gratitude for all Jesus has done that we never once deserved. Amen.
