move on. start over. accept who you are. enough.
3 tools that should be used to shape who we are.
we are righteous in jesus. we are qualified by god. we can be sure of eternal life.
if our prayer lives consist of 100% apologies to god, and our small group conversations consist of sulking and pouting about recent or current sin, we are blatantly missing the point of being redeemed.
redeem: do something that compensates for poor past performance or behavior.
we are blind, we are poor, we are wretched, we are naked.
we are righteous, we are redeemed, we are pure, we are holy.
because of this fact, the realization of sin should produce an overwhelming repentance, leading to great newfound freedom in christ jesus. not endless tears and sadness that produces overwhelming disparity.
when you sin, you have an advocate with the father that is always interceding for you.
the result of this truth is/should be absolute and total freedom from sin. his kindness leads to repentance. don’t presume that the forbearance of jesus and his great mercy is a ticket, or a catalyst to keep sinning.
also, don’t think that you shouldn’t be broken over sin, that’s a part of repentance.
psalm 51 says that God loves a broken and contrite heart.
all of those words can be summed up in this: go and sin no more, but if you do, jesus loves the junk out of you.
so i say again, move on, start over, and enough.
move on from sin, start over, and enough with the sadness.
