I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin. Psalm 38:18

In this psalm David cries out to the Lord, lamenting the misery of his sin. Jonathan Edwards, in his famous sermon; Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, described sin as "the ruin and misery of the soul; it is destructive in its nature; and if God should leave it without restraint, there would be no need of anything else to make the soul perfectly miserable."

Sin ruins us. It destroys us and draws us away from the One who made us. The hidden offenses as well as the overt sins chip away at the beautiful creation God intended us to be. As ruinous as sin is to us, David had the right idea: confession, repentance, and looking to the Lord alone for mercy. Praise God that the One we offend is also the One quick to forgive our sins and heal our self-inflicted miseries.

The fact that sin is so awful on us mentally, physically, and spiritually is in itself a blessing. Those are the pains we need to humble us and make us look up to God. Jesus befriends us at our worst, and when He does, He makes us purer than we ever thought possible.

Insight: Jesus' offer still stands, telling us to "come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest". Matthew 11:28

Please make me aware of my sins dear Lord, so I can come to You right away with confession and ask You for forgiveness. I want Your power in me, so I will not repeat them. Lord, have mercy on me...In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
