Monday, April 30

Rescue us and forgive our sins for the sake of your name.—Ps. 79:9.


Even when we are persecuted, we do our best to live according to God’s righteous principles and laws. By performing righteous deeds, we let our light shine and thus bring glory to Jehovah’s name. (Matt. 5:14-16) As holy people, we prove by the way we live our lives that Jehovah’s laws are good and that Satan’s accusations are false. When we make mistakes, as we all do, we genuinely repent and turn away from practices that dishonor Jehovah. On the basis of Christ’s sacrifice, Jehovah forgives the sins of those who exercise faith. He accepts as his worshippers those who dedicate themselves to him. Jehovah declares anointed Christians righteous as his sons and those of the “other sheep” righteous as his friends. (John 10:16; Rom. 5:1, 2;Jas. 2:21-25) So even now, the ransom enables us to have a righteous standing with our Father and to share in the sanctification of his name. w17.02 2:5, 6

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

This scripture teaches us that Jehovah can be expected to listen to prayers, particularly when it’s related to the vindication of his name. We can have a share in vindicating his name by dedicating our life to him, having a full share in the ministry, living according to his standards, doing for others, repenting for any sins, and having faith in the ransom and all Jehovah’s promises will come true.
