Three Reasons Why Christians Are... Or Should Be... Talking About How Sinful They Are


 
Christianity,Self Improvement,Spiritual
Mature Christians have a tendency to discuss how sinful they are. Yet it has nothing to do with beating themselves up; rather, it provides various rewards!

I remember visiting Catholic church every Sunday while I was growing up. One of the several subjects that bewildered me was any type of discussion that seemed to lament the sinfulness of each and every one of us in the room!

I questioned why we ought to go to church only to feel poorly about ourselves!

Of course, when I matured as a Christian, mainly after going to more Presbyterian services, small groups, and discipleship groups, I started to truly be aware of the importance, along with the benefits… yes, I said the BENEFITS of this exercise. I've captured three such benefits for you to contemplate listed below:

#1: Build Humility

The first key benefit is reflecting on the serious sinful propensities in your attitudes will BUILD HUMILITY inside you. Your thoughts may well not continuously transpire into sinful action; however, their very presence inside your heart is sinful! Jesus Himself explains this clearly in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew Chapter 5). If you're not really acquainted with this idea, take a peek at this passage in the Bible and discover how Christ identifies infidelity (looking at women lustfully) and murder (unrighteous anger) as examples. Recognizing sin by God’s standards as outlined by Jesus is more than enough to humble me to knowing the intensity of my sin.

#2: Develop Deep Gratitude for Jesus

Another major advantage of comprehending the depth of your sinfulness is you will develop a deep thankfulness for the gift of Jesus. Building off the first benefit identified in this article, with a heart so full of sin, how can we not but understand our great need to have a Savior?! Particularly, if we are deeply sinful, justice requires we pay a fair penalty for that sin. Guess what… Jesus already saved us from all of our sin - past, present, and future! Because of this, our thankfulness for His gift is only able to expand as we frequently think about how sinful we have been. His sacrifice allows you and me to circumvent the wrath of God which we so deeply merit.

#3: Develop Appreciation for the Holiness of God

A 3rd major benefit for reflecting on your sinfulness is that you will build up an awesome appreciation and knowledge of the Holiness of God. Contrasting your very own innate sinfulness with a entirely righteous God should fill you with an amazement that overflows in worship. His standards are spectacular! We honor our God, the Creator, for such holy and righteous character that's beyond our own capabilities and awareness. Recognizing how easy it is for you to sin will assist you to appreciate how extraordinary a God who cannot sin truly is! Thus, your heart will naturally be driven to WORSHIP Him... And that's your main purpose in life.
