Day 36: 1 Peter 4:8

Day 36Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8).

There are two ways love can cover sin. There is the love that conceals sin behind a façade of a false smile and polite small talk. Then there is the love of Christ who has covered our every sin – not by pretending it doesn’t matter, but by blotting it out through His blood shed for us. If we are to love sincerely and deeply, then we need to know this love of Christ in our own hearts.

Today take time to realise Christ has paid the price for all your sin – every single one.

If you want to reflect further, consider what Jesus says about forgiveness in Luke 7:36-50.
