Sunday, October 1: Champs & Misfits
piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow,
and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
I am not convinced anyone has been able to untangle entirely the threads in the fabric, nevertheless, one of those inner threads we call the conscience. Although our conscience is fallen, flawed and not entirely reliable we all have one and we violate it every day.
Here is the problem. With skill and care a surgeon’s scalpel can slice through skin with precision and take out a malignant tumor. No knife, however, can reach inside us and clean the cancer out of a guilty conscience. The writer of Hebrews tells us that can only be accomplished by the hand of God. See you on Sunday.
