Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV
There are some foods that are banned in Canada that are readily available in the USA. Included are milk and all other dairy products containing bovine growth hormone. Foods like these are banned not only in Canada but in Europe as well. The hormone is used to make cows produce more milk than they normally can. Unfortunately, active components of the injections are present in the product itself. The Canadian government recommends that Canadians not consume a number of other products available in the USA.
Sin and guilt are horrible things. They paralyze us, embarrass us, and when the life of a Christian is marked by sin, it brings dishonour to the name of Jesus and harm to the efforts to share with the world the transforming power of God. Sin eats away at our souls and puts us at risk of the judgment of God. The good news is that God loves us, and His desire is to cleanse us from all unrighteousness so that we can stand pure before Him. By bearing upon Himself the punishment we deserve for our sin, Jesus sets us free when we repent and put our faith and trust in Him. It’s no wonder that Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Because God loves us and has provided a redeemer in Jesus, our sin and guilt don’t consume us, God’s judgment doesn’t consume us. Instead, His love consumes us – His compassions never fail. God loves you so much, and you can trust in His faithful compassion which is new every morning.
These have been words from the heart.
