Even though the sorry can be filled with incredible remorse for its own shallowness, it’s the thought of how easy it is to compromise, sin, and then think that forgiveness is mine after the fall.
What are we really doing?
The whole idea was that Christ died for us, was buried for us, rose from the dead for us and that was for only one purpose – that we might enter into a new life, free from the slavery of sin. What am I doing going back to that?
What does it take to crucify the old self?
The Holy Spirit will play a big part in that, but it needs my attitude adjustment, my obedience to the fact that I am dead to sin and alive to God. It takes a decision that Christ will reign in my life and my obedience is not to my passions but to my purpose in Christ.
Set free from the law, and under grace, in thankfulness, I now need to become a slave to righteousness.
