Yesterday was an interesting day in the legal system. Robert Blake received a not guilty verdict by reason of reasonable doubt. Scott Peterson gets a death sentence. Both were guilty (and they deserve to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law) - one gets off and one goes free. Our legal system is inperfect. By contrast, God's legal system is perfect. It's interesting to me that while we can never ultimately know who is guilty or who is not (unless the evidence says otherwise - maybe that comes from watching CSI) God does. God is the ultimate jury and judge. I'm thankful that my destiny is in the hands of God and not men for God is a God of grace, his judgement is perfect, and as I come to him and confess my failures he is faithful and just and right and perfect in forgiving my mistakes and cleansing me from all my impurities. Grace and peace this day.
