In the book of First John in the Bible we read, “If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and His word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10). God does not lie. He declares that we are offenders against His word. He accuses us of hiding impure thoughts and attitudes in our hearts. He judges us for violating His standards of justice and mercy. And the Lord impugns us for our slowness in not doing all the positive things He would have us to do. But praise the Lord that in the midst of our guilt we have an advocate, Jesus Christ the righteous. And…freedom and forgiveness is available for all who trust in Him. Praise the Lord for His redemptive power!
