My Vision of Agreeing With God About Sin-Lent 12, 2020

Prayer Focus: Gaining a more biblical view of my own sin

Holy Father, Almighty God, You have every right to be repulsed by human sin and to find sin offensive to Your holiness and perfection. You are always righteous in everything You do and I need Your help to see my sins as You see them. May Your Holy Spirit teach me the gravity of the sins which seem small on a human comparison level, but are amplified by my committing them against, not just man, but my eternal God and Savior. If my sins were not a big deal, Jesus wouldn’t need to have died for them. Help me to see this is the cost of even the tiniest transgression. In You is all Truth and Wisdom, all Love and Mercy, all Perfection now and forever more. Remind me that You are also forgiving when I condemn myself over my sins…and that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I thank You for Your mercy and the forgiveness You purchased for me by the blood of Your Son Jesus. Thank You that Jesus bore all the wrath against sin, and I am forever grateful He forgives the sins I have committed. I’m sorry for the weight of sin I contributed to the wrath He bore for humankind. Thank You that even though my sins are like scarlet, they have been washed white as snow in the cleansing blood of Christ and by His forgiveness, my sins are removed as far as east is from the west. Thank You, Lord, for the assurance in Your Word. I praise You, Lord. I thank You for Your mercy. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
