October 4

 I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments … “In those days they will not say again, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children’s teeth are set on edge.’ But everyone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge.” - Exodus 20:5-5; Jeremiah 31:29-30

Family legends suggest my forebears were Alabama bootleggers. It bothered me as a child that I would pay for their sins. Under the New Covenant, made in Jesus Christ, we become responsible for our own sin—not the sins of our ancestors. Were it not for Christ we would stand in eternity guilty of the sins of our parentage, all the way back to Adam. But in Christ, we become new creations, with a new family—that of God. There’s no sin heritage in that family tree and nothing for which we must give account except out own sin. And all our iniquity has been removed by Christ’s blood.
