Ever notice the dust particles dancing about in the rays of sun light beaming through the window?
Sure, but only when the sun light reveals them.
The dust is every- where, but it is only made visible by the light.
So it is with my sin. It is made visible by the light of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit.
The stronger the light, the more evident the dust.
What happens is that I have a vastly greater sense of the wickedness and sinfulness of my own heart and life.
I am not more sinful, I just have a greater awareness and sense of it in myself.
I can’t do anything about my sinful nature. Only God can.
Therefore I need to turn to Him for help.
I need to believe in absolute faith, repent of my sins, confess my sorrow, and surrender my life to Jesus.
Even though I surrender my entire life to Jesus the presence of sin is still a factor in my life.
But….my connection with sin has been radically altered.
The Holy Spirit is now showing me the way to walk with God.
I am no longer obligated to obey sin’s prompting.
Before, I had nothing but my own strength to withstand such prompting.
The closer I walk with God, the greater will be my knowledge and awareness of sin.
Not other people’s sin, but mine.
I suspect that this is what God is trying to teach me today.
And, I am anxiously endeavoring to digest ALL of it.
