The Steadying Hand of the Lord

Psalm 37: 23-24 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand

We are not preaching salvation by perfectionism. The good man, the upright man, the righteous man, is not the sinless man. All men are sinners. Even saints are sinners. The judgment of a man’s worth is not whether he sins, or not. Worthy men sin. As one wise man said, “Men at their best are men at best.”

The measure of a man is what he does with his sin. Does he confess? Does he repent? Does he receive forgiveness? A man fallen and cast down by sin can be forgiven and raised from his calamity, for the Lord shall uphold him with His own right hand, His own dear Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior. If we cast ourselves on Jesus, He will not leave us in the state of despair. He will forgive our sins. He will take our hand and raise us up and bring us into the presence of His Father. Glory be to God.
