We have to recognize that sin is a fact of life, not just a shortcoming. Sin is blatant mutiny against God, and either sin or God must die in my life. —Oswald Chambers
Recognizing that sin is the very thing that “killed the life of God” on the cross, should cause us to take it more seriously. If sin can kill God, it can certainly kill us–UNLESS–we are intimately acquainted with the One who had victory over it. Become intimately acquainted with the sin bearer, let Him dwell in your heart and see “sin” loose its grip on you. That is the only remedy for sad and dying hearts.
