God isn't fair!
He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us
according to our iniquities. Psalms 103:10 (NKJV)
If there was ever a sentence or scripture in the Bible that you should highlight, circle, and underline, it's this one! If there's one truth to walk away from God's Word with, it's that He hasn't dealt with us according to our sins.
Let's refresh our minds of this fact: When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, he brought on horrific
consequences to each of his descendents. By disobediently
partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, he set himself and the race that would flow from him at irreconcilable odds with Almighty God.
Sin entered into the human condition, and from that point on, mankind would no longer fall into the "innocent"
category of heaven's ledger but instead into
the "guilty" category. In fact, the Bible describes us as "enemies of God" and "children of wrath" (Romans 5:10, Ephesians 2:3). Whether we saw ourselves that way or not, that's how God viewed us in our sinful condition—a rebellious race deserving of eternal punishment.
This backdrop is what makes Psalm 103:10 so indescribably amazing. As guilty as we were and as deserving as we were to receive judgment, God determined not to give us what we earned. He determined not to punish us according to what our sins deserved, which was a hopeless fate beyond human description.
No, instead He did something we did not and could not deserve. He sent His perfect son to absorb the shockwaves of
our sin and completely cover them in His
righteousness. None of this was "fair" in the strict sense, and we can be glad that God wasn't fair to us, but went way beyond fairness by being way more gracious than we deserved.
Thank you, Lord, for being "unfair" towards us when it comes to the unfathomable grace You've poured upon us.
Think about it…

He showed us the strength of the Spirit. And all that our faith can achieve.
He promised the comfort of healing, if only we trust and believe.
He told us of life everlasting, for us and for those we have known.

The Word of Life WRU Church has opened its doors since June 15th for private and individual prayer.
But from Sunday July the 5th we recommenced our Sunday Services. with Praise & Worship led by Pastors Michael & Lindsey; with no congregational singing for the time being. Prayer was congregational and Holy Communion was taken together. A sermon was preached. We are still broadcasting the service live on our Facebook live page for those who cannot attend the service.
It was wonderful to see everyone together again and we look forward to the coming weeks ahead when everyone will be able to join with us.
From Tuesday 14th July at 10:30am we will be holding our prayer group again.
From Friday 17th July from 10:30 am we will be holding our coffee morning again.
