Christian Comics – High Society 5
High Society 5; The Deal
This comic feels very timely right now.
I know so many, myself included who feel like we are under a similar deal with God right now like Zeke has with this person, we feel like there is some unspoken rule that the crimes of our past bind us to try and be accountable for our wrongs long after we have come before God and left it at God’s feet, that if ever allow ourselves the mercy of letting go of that feeling of self loathing we are not strong in our faith…
That is a lie though!
The enemy wants us to feel that even after repentance before God and Christ that we are not fully redeemed and in doing so it creates a smoke and mirrors effect that while we are focused on ourselves we do not see that by refusing to let go we dishonor God by calling him a liar, by not believing that God has forgiven us because in our hearts we cannot think God would forgive us if we can’t do so ourselves.
Don’t fall for the illusion the pain of regret makes, the only deal is that if you repent and ask God for forgiveness you get it, don’t pick it back up, don’t carry a piece of it with you in secret, trade your ashes for beauty and accept God’s deal of forgiveness today.
…to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.
God bless Pact Keepers. 😉
