If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?Father God, do your work in me. Convict me of my sin and raise me up through the power of your forgiveness, then fill me with your love. Let me love others as you have first loved me. In Jesus' name.
