AN ABSOLUTE KING’S ADMISSION
TEXT: EXODUS 9:25-37
MEMORY VERSE: “And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked” (EXODUS 9:27).
To admit is to acknowledge, own up or confess that something is true. Admission in this context is accepting the reality of God’s existence, judgment and power.
Our text today reveals the plague that befell the Egyptians as a result of the hardness of the heart of pharaoh who was the king in Egypt at that time. His ungodly and selfish decision brought suffering to the Egyptians. Pharaoh admitted his sinfulness when he realized God’s faithful judgment. However, he failed to yield himself fully to God to obtain full pardon.
You should not wait for the wrath of God before repenting genuinely of your sinful lifestyle. God will always forgive as many as acknowledge and admit their sinful states; and confess their sin, pleading for pardon.
As God preserved the children of Israel in the midst of the plague, He will always protect youths who are holy and righteous. The challenge is for you to admit your sinfulness today and accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour. He is not willing that you should perish in hell!
QUOTE: He is not willing that you should perish.
CHALLENGE: Do not dare God.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to honour You with my life.
