Scripture

 

Psalm 32The Message (MSG)

A David Psalm

 

32 Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—
    you get a fresh start,
    your slate’s wiped clean.

 

Count yourself lucky—
    God holds nothing against you
    and you’re holding nothing back from him.

 

When I kept it all inside,
    my bones turned to powder,
    my words became daylong groans.

 

The pressure never let up;
    all the juices of my life dried up.

 

Then I let it all out;
    I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.”

 

Suddenly the pressure was gone—
    my guilt dissolved,
    my sin disappeared.

 

These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray;
    when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts
    we’ll be on high ground, untouched.

 

God’s my island hideaway,
    keeps danger far from the shore,
    throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

 

Let me give you some good advice;
    I’m looking you in the eye
    and giving it to you straight:

 

“Don’t be ornery like a horse or mule
    that needs bit and bridle
    to stay on track.”

 

10 God-defiers are always in trouble;
    God-affirmers find themselves loved
    every time they turn around.

11 Celebrate God.
    Sing together—everyone!
    All you honest hearts, raise the roof!

 

2 Corinthians 5:16-21The Message (MSG)

16-20 Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins. God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you.

21 How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.
