Has God been speaking to you about your sin lately? How many sins can you think of right now? Have you grown tired of laying them down at the foot of the cross only to pick them up again, time after time? Are you suspicious when others around you profess they've been delivered from sin, but you think they're hypocrites because "walking the talk" in areas of your own life has been so hard? Have they found freedom while you remain in bondage? Have you stopped asking God to deal with your sin because you either desire it too much or don't believe you can be free from it? Have you seen your sin as a wall between you and God that won't let you pass?

Have you remained on this side of the wall for a long, long time knowing deep inside you haven't been able to move on with God? Is it because you haven't been willing to pay the price of denying yourself the pleasure of sin? Have you been driven away from the presence of the Lord because conviction about sin in your life has made you turn and run from His holiness? Do you worry about what those around you think regarding your Christian walk? Is that why you pretend when you're around them? Do you pretend in God's presence too? Is it worth the cost of intimacy with your Lord? Are you willing to let your heart be hardened against God because of un repented sin?

The Bible says "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near. John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.” 1st John 1:9 says “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” The answer in dealing with sin is to run toward the throne of Grace into your Father's presence, not away from Him. As you encounter the Lord's holiness, your sin will fall away under God's purifying presence and the desire to sin will dissipate.
