I don’t want to construct a life that displays my earnest effort to avoid the need to repent. I want to delight in the mercy of God and display the truth of His goodness!
Repentance is a joy, and forgiveness is exhilarating!
He is so good to me! Jesus came to set me free, today! I haven’t matured beyond my need for His mercy. I need Him today, and I’ll need Him tomorrow. And just because He wants to, because of who He is, He’ll be there to answer when I turn away from sin and turn to Him and ask Him to cleanse me again.
There is no sin that can defeat me when I really bring it to Him and say “This sin is mine. I don’t want it anymore. Please get it out of me. I can’t do it myself!” JESUS WINS! Every. Single. Time.
