The goodness of recognising and confronting sin

God reminds us that sin is real, and it can be forgiven. This is the truth of His word (just read the heart-rending Psalm 51, as David confesses his sin and turns to God alone to be forgiven!). God reminds us that sin can really be taken on, because we have one who stands in for us, and has transferred and transformed us (His name is Jesus!). God reminds us that dealing with sin, and trusting in Jesus, is the truth of grace and obedience going hand-in-hand. To know Jesus is to be the object of God’s grace. To know Jesus is to obey Jesus – obedience displays that we have received grace.

From Series: "The Good Life"

We begin a series on ‘the good life’ – the goodness as life being one of God’s people. We want to be reminded of the goodness of being a disciple of Jesus. Our world often regards Christians as ‘the bad guys’ – we are regarded as judgmental, as argumentative, as intolerant. As we face this world, we need to know the truth and reality of our sin and our need of grace and the great salvation in Jesus. But we also need to be reminded of all that is good about living as a disciple of Jesus.
