Called to a Higher Standard
Real love calls for repentance. Real love will tell you the truth; you are going to stand before a Holy God.
Real love will press in. God does love you, come to Him as you are, but you can not stay there. The blood of Jesus washes you clean.
Repentance is not an insincere apology.
Repentance is owning your sin, through confession, being broken before the Lord and turning away from sin.
We don’t accidently sin. We make a choice.
When we were kids our mothers would ask us, “If your friends jump off a bridge, are you going to too?”
We can not act like, or do what, the rest of the world is doing. We are called to a higher standard, a Holy standard.
If you fall, repent and get back up.
If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose]. 1 John 1:9
