Our attitude towards sin speaks volumes about our love for Jesus. The desire for holiness has dropped significantly and it’s time we assume a resurgence.
I am so tired of Christians ignoring their sin, yet exclaiming their love for Jesus. I’m not talking about the nuances of Christian liberties either. I’m talking about the blacks and whites, stuff that even a new believer could distinguish. If it has an “explicit language” label, leave it alone. I’m routinely surprised by the music I hear Christians listening to, the movies they watch, the way they gossip so freely, the deception in their social media posts…and these are Christians who should be chewing on spiritual meat at this point but instead are still crawling among sin in their spiritual diapers hardly holding themselves to a standard of holiness.
