(Romans 3:23). For we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. My view is that there is no sinner like a young saint. Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified? There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable. I say be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly. If you go through life and say that you never lie in life, you honestly insult your own intelligence and deceive yourself and others.
No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in. God knows I'm not perfect, either. I've made tons of stupid mistakes, and later I regretted them, and I've done it over and over again, thousands of times. (1 John 3:4). Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. (Matthew 5:48). You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
(Proverbs 12:22). Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. Accepting the reality of our sinful nature means accepting our authentic self. Judas could not face his shadow; Peter could. So the sorrow of God lies in our fear of Him, our fear of life, and our fear of ourselves. Too often, we say we are defeated by this or that sin, no, we are not defeated, we are simply disobedient.
(Jeremiah 10:23). I know, O Lord, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps. (Psalm 32:5). I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
We must remember that in self-defence and in defence of the innocent, cowardice is the only sin, when you are guilty, it is not your sins you hate but yourself, I know that sin is looking for the right thing in the wrong place, and we also need to remember that the Lord does not forgive excuses, he forgives sin, and go to the Lord and ask for forgiveness.
(Ecclesiastes 7:20). Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins, only those who are truly aware of their sin can truly cherish grace. In his life Christ is an example showing us how to live in his death he is a sacrifice satisfying our sins in his resurrection. We sinned for no reason but an incomprehensible lack of love, and he saved us for no reason but an incomprehensible excess of love.
Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us. Vanity is our favourite sin, there is only one way to salvation, and that is to make yourself responsible for your sins, remember nothing can hurt you except sin; nothing can grieve you except sin; nothing can defeat you except sin, therefore, be on your guard, (Psalm 119:11). I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you O Lord. (Romans 7:12-14). So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good, do that which is good.
(Romans 6:15-16). What then, are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness, remember that the nearer a man lives to God, the more intensely has he to mourn over his own evil heart, it looks like that we're more concerned about our own victory over sin than we are about the fact that our sins grieve God's heart.
True Christian fortitude consists in strength of mind, through grace, exerted in two things; in ruling and suppressing the evil and unruly passions and affections of the mind; and in steadfastly and freely exerting and following good affections and dispositions, without being hindered by sinful fear or the opposition of enemies. Repentance the key to being forgiven.
(Proverbs 28:13). He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. (Psalm 51:10). O God, create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me. The nature of God's forgiveness. (Romans 3:24), Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Amen.
