What is Sin?

Prodigal: Sometimes my spirit is just not right.

Me: We might have sin that needs to be dealt with.

This is from the book God Works The Night Shift by Ron Mehl

What is sin?

It’s me trying to meet my own needs.

It’s me trying to walk without help.

It’s me trying to satisfy my own soul.

It’s me stubbornly refusing to let God, by His strong and gracious hand,

save me, keep me, and sustain me.

Lord, Help me today. I do not need to do this own my own. I can already tell that this will not work today. No, what I need is to surrender to you and for me to allow myself to be directed by you. I need to have love in my heart, forgiveness and a humble spirit. I need to have my focus be on you and not the past. Lord please guide me this day.

The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

LUKE 18 : 27
