Getting a new relationship with your sin - one mark of a Christian

Recently, my prayer has been transformed to asking God that His people would have a new relationship with their sin.  It is one thing to have a new or fresh relationship with the LORD - but we ought to have a fresh relationship with our sin.

You see, for every attribute of God that exists - there are so many of them - we need to realize that what we are really doing is identifying a statement of comparison.  For when we say that God is Holy, that brings the comparison that something else is unholy.  When we say that God is righteous, that brings the comparison that something else is unrighteous.  When we discuss how everyone who has victory will not have their name erased from the book of life, that brings the comparison that some will not have victory.

Jesus Himself spoke that there are some people to whom He will say, "Get away from me, I never knew you!"

So I encourage you my brother and sister, freshen up your relationship with God.
But also, develop a fresh relationship with your sin.

We often ask the question of, "Do you really know God?"
I'm asking also, "Do you really know your sin?"

How can we know what Holiness is, how can we know how much we need God... until we see how full of sin we are indeed.  Please allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you everything that is unholy in you.

Remove the junk from your life, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

The admonishment is that the Wages of Sin is Death.
But the glorious good news is that God's gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ the LORD.
