Countless men and women fight a measureless battle to resist sin, intentionally choosing the harder path, and all to the glory of the Lord, trusting that His glory is a more worthy pursuit than their own desires. That’s biblical manhood and womanhood and, dare I say it, Christlikeness, at its pinnacle.
If we stop mourning, we stop repenting. If we stop repenting, we stop confessing. If we stop confessing, our bones waste away. Freedom and comfort come when our sin is rightly dealt with, and that process begins with mourning.
Here we explore the effect that sin has upon humanity and our relationship with God, and also discuss how God is sovereign over human sin.
