Scripture: Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
Devotional: One of the most dangerous ways we can be indifferent or apathetic is when it comes to our sin. We can too easily rationalize sin, and live without truly fearing God. In our culture, we rename sin to make it something not as bad, It's not adultery, it's an affair. It's not pornography, it's adult entertainment. We give it a better name and tell ourselves, I'm not that bad. I'm not as bad as everybody else.
The problem with that is it’s a lie. Sin is sin. And all sin grieves the heart of God. And if you let it go unconfessed and refuse to repent, it drives a wedge between you and God.
- What sin have you refused to acknowledge in your life?
- Would you confess that before God now?
