We are sinners. We can try to hide or downplay that fact, but that doesn’t change it from being the truth. Still, even as sinners we have a savior who seeks to restore us if we will come to him. Read psalm 25.
For Your name’s sake, O Lord , Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.
Psalms 25:11 NASB
Do we recognize that our sin is great? Many times we have difficulty just admitting that we are sinners, let alone seeing the greatness and magnitude of our sin. Only through the blood of Jesus Christ are we able to stand, yet we try to justify what we do our how we do it to make ourselves seem better than we are.
We need the forgiveness that is found through Jesus Christ. Only he is able to pardon our sin. Our sin is great and all-consuming. Do we acknowledge both to God and to ourselves the depth of our rebellion of God?
