While I do my best to not choose sin – and I believe that those who love God and have vowed to serve Him with their lives also do their best – it happens. I don’t make excuses that “I’m only human” or “even Paul sinned!” – I just humble myself at the foot of the cross and repent. Sin brings grief to the heart of a Christian. And there have been times that I have rather shared that grief with others than the holy name of Jesus. Getting – and keeping – my heart right and settled only on Him is the only way to fulfill His command to “Go, therefore, and make disciples…” by my words AND my deeds.
