This verse always reminds me of my dear friend, Donna. I do not know if this was Donna’s very favorite verse, but it was certainly one of them. Donna was a wonderful baker. She was fabulous at making scrumptious treats. Several summers, Donna led Bible studies involving chocolates and other treats around the reminder to “taste and see that the Lord is good.”
Music holds such power to connect us in amazing ways . . . to our present, to our past, to one another, to God. Amazon Alexa wakes me up every morning to praise and worship music. I listen to KLOVE in my car. If I am having a down time, I turn on music in my home or office. I love to read and study and listen to the great hymns of the faith. Music has the power to change my day and my attitude completely around.
1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” This is not merely a one and done, once for all, repentance of sin. We call this justification, and it is important in the life of the Christian.
