Bob Kauflin writes, "Satan uses the reality of our sin to condemn & make us hopeless. The Spirit uses it to convict and point us to Christ.
Our sin is real. So who do we agree with?
Do we remain under condemnation and hopelessness, leading to despair?
Do we minimize sins importance and in doing so trivialize the sacrifice Jesus' made on the cross?
Or do we acknowledge our sin, confess it and receive, once again, the grace of the Faithful One, Jesus Christ?
1 John 2:1-2
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
May all truth point us to Christ, even the truth of our own weakness and propensity to wander.
In His Grip,
