Are there days once you really feel like a failure at all the pieces you do? Your tongue lashes out in cruelty on the very kids you’re keen on. You lose endurance with co-workers. The envy you’ve fought so arduous to regulate will get one of the best of you, and your coronary heart truly fills with hatred towards a neighbor.
When God shines the sunshine of his Phrase down on our inconsistent blunders, we cower in its brightness and dart away to search out cowl. Ooooh! It’s so arduous to withstand our errors as guilt factors its accusing finger.
What good is guilt? It truly opens the door to therapeutic. We’ve got to see—actually see—our sinfulness so as to obtain God’s grace. We who deeply want righteousness should flip our faces full into the sunshine of God’s perfection. There we are able to see our sin and our want for his grace. And in that brightness we are able to see the love on God’s face and his want to revive us to him.
