Leviticus 9:1-24; Psalms 109:1-110:7; Mark 1:21-45

And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah. Genesis 20:2

The tragedy surrounding this incident is that this is the second time Abraham told a lie to save himself (Gen 12:10). Surely God would not forgive again. Not only did God forgive him but helped him escape from this self-inflicted mess. Take heart believer, our Heavenly Father is more merciful than we deserve. Confess, and remember that His blood avails in our weakness (1 John 1:9). —Brian Russell

Jesus my Lord will love me forever,
From Him, no power of evil can sever. —Norman Clayton
