Started reading “How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home” by Derek Thomas this past week.
We either set about killing sin or sin kills us.
The pain of sin can be pretty intense and manifest in many ways. And it drives this wedge between me and God that I can hardly bear. It brings about intense loneliness in me because I can feel the separation. Finding the sin and putting it to death is critical but not always easy. Many things that I do are natural and I convince myself that what I am doing is OK or what I am saying is the truth.
Days later I think to myself, why did I do or say that? Lord, these are the sins I need help putting to death. Help me.
