Dealing With Personal Sin

I can take this and run with it because I have to do this throughout every day of my life, I ask God in the name of Jesus for forgiveness. It is just that simple. The Bible say He will be faithful to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The difficult part of all this is realizing we have a need for forgiveness. We have to realize our state and the problems in our lives and know we need to repent and ask for forgiveness. This is the difficult thing because none of us want to face the faults within ourselves. We fear if we start we will never stop, because we are very aware of the most glaring problems.

As we spend time with God everyday, He will show us more and more areas of our lives we need to turn over to Him. As we progress down that road of greater communion with Him, we start looking with joy (instead of fear) of what He will show us. We know the examination can only help to draw us closer to Him and that is the goal.

As we draw closer to Him, the more of Him shines forth from our lives and will draw others to Him through us. This lifestyle evangelization is the goal of us all. The winning of souls to the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of their lives is what God wants. He wants all His estranged children to come to Him and accept the gift He made of Christ on the cross.
