    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Less Self-Centered and More God-Centered

It is all about me!Jerry Bridges:

Our first problem is that our attitude towards sin is more self-centered than God-centered. We are more concerned about our own “Victory” over sin than we are about the fact that our sin grieves the heart of God. We cannot tolerate failure in our struggle with sin chiefly because we are success oriented, not because we know it is offensive to God.

  2. I believe a good understanding of confession of sin is “agreeing with God about my sin” and when we do this, we see sin in all its ugliness and we see God’s hatred for it and what it cost Him and how it grieves Him to see His blood-bought, adopted children committing sin when He has provided a way of escape . . . and then we are truly remorseful and repentant.
