Christian Devotional – August 25, 2012

Isaiah 64:6–For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; and all of us wither like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

There is nothing that we do on our own that is good, absolutely nothing. We are all unclean and sinful before a holy and righteous God. Each person must come to the place where we recognize the serious problem that our own wrongs caused. Without God we will wither and be blown away. Only God can save us and change us and give meaning to all that we do for Him.

Lord, without You I am lost in my wrong doings. Nothing I do without You could be considered good. Thank You for Your salvation. Only through You can I do anything that would be considered good and I surrender to You today. Work Your good through me.
