Last week, Pastor John Samuel Barnett spoke on forgiveness in the context of prayer. Today, Pastor Barnett covers what exactly we are asking forgiveness for.
Just as your sanctification should increase the further you walk in the way of the Lord, the greater your understanding how just how devastating sin is should become. Sin is what caused a Holy and Just God to separate Himself from man in a relational aspect (Genesis 3). Sin is what makes us suppress the truth of God (Romans 1). Sin is why we need the perfect Man/God, Jesus to die for us (1 Peter 2).
Let us increase our hatred for our sin so that it may decrease while our understanding of what God did because of our sin increases.
