Here is the kicker though with all of that sin–we have to stop the cycles of sin. We can understand that God melts it away. We can be thankful for that. But part of that gratitude is RESPECT to God, and not adding more sin on top of more sin on top of more sin.
We cannot take advantage, we can not be entitled, we can not be irreverent. We can not think that we can battle sin with sin.
We must do the exact opposite of those things if we are to live in the joy that God promises. Otherwise we aren’t truly saved from the despair of our own world, but just living on the edge between the two.
We must be grateful for every opportunity to act in love, be respectful of the joy and peace that can be so easily shattered, and try our hardest every day to battle sin with choices to love, be kind, be patient, to see our hearts.
Are you letting layers of sin build up? Are you holding them all together and saving them up? Are you adding to the layers each day?
