No matter sin gets redefined, it can’t unring the bell. Ignore it, offset it with good or call it something else, the roots of guilt remain like an impossibly stubborn weed. What can we do? Start here…
“Father in heaven! Hold not our sins up against us but hold us up against our sins, so that the thought of Thee when it wakens in our soul…should not remind us of what we have committed but of what Thou didst forgive, not of how we went astray but of how Thou didst save us!” —Soren Kierkegaard
God’s grace has always been about what He did for us, not because we’re good, but because He’s God. It’s just the way He is.
That makes me worship.
One thought on “Weed Killer”
Thanks for this Jay. I had a conversation recently about the issue of sin. A friend spoke about his hatred of sin and I remarked that I focus on the grace of God since Jesus has taken sin off the list of problems we face. His unfathomable grace is mind boggling!
