Free To Respond To The Spirit’s Revelation Of Our Sin Honestly

We can be free to respond to the Spirit’s revelation of our sin in

honesty and repentance, knowing that his mercy is sure. A good

reputation and the avoidance of struggle do not compare to the

healing of our souls that Jesus offers.

In anxiety, in discouragement, in sorrow, and in suffering we

can be free. Free to trust him, free to pray, free to remain firm,

and even free to rejoice. Not to deny the pain, and not to claim

that we necessarily understand God’s purpose in these things.

But knowing his promise to use everything for our good, and

that he alone knows all things. We can know that he uses

adversity to teach us patience, to give us a peace beyond

understanding, to strengthen our faith, and to make us able to

minister to others, and know that Jesus has suffered all of these

things, that he is fully able to sympathize with our weaknesses.

He is the God of all comfort.
