This morning, the news shows were asking how badly these gaffes would hurt the candidates. And, of course, the shows played the gaffes over and over. All the talking head commentators endlessly discussed them. I got to thinking, "Do we believe God is like a morning news show?" Is he up in heaven minutely scrutinizing everything we say and do so that he endlessly brings it up to us? Is he dis- cussing what to do about us with the angels? Is he shaking his head over how much our gaffes and sins will hurt us? Or do we really believe what the Bible says about God? That He doesn't keep a record of sin, but instead He for- gives? That as far as the East is from the West -- so far has he removed our transgressions from us? Therefore, is there no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus? Do we believe God loves to publicize our sins and hold us up to his judgment? Or do we believe he partners with us in our sanctification and that he who has begun a good work in us will bring it to completion on the day of Jesus Christ? The news shows wondered whether the candidates would pay for their mistakes next November. Do you believe that someday you will have to pay for your sins, or do you believe as the old hymn says, "Jesus paid it all?" Now "all to him I owe." That's not so I can get Him off my back, but so I can thank Him. God doesn't work for Cable News Network or Fox News Channel. And I'm glad he doesn't.
