Desperation

8 Do not hold against us the sins of past generations; may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need. Psalm 79:8

God does not hold us responsible for the sins of our forefathers. Thankfully. We are responsible for our own sins. Our sins and decisions can affect our children and grandchildren but they are not responsible for us.

As Asaph so succinctly said, “we are in desperate need.” Yes, our forefathers and our children are also in desperate need but much of that is out of our control.

Desperate, you say? How so?

We desperately need to be forgiven.
We desperately need love.
We desperately need saving.
We desperately need strength.
We desperately need Christ.

Desperation is a very good thing when it leads to Christ.
