The Bible takes sin seriously because it takes man (male and female) seriously. As we have seen, Christians do not deny the fact – in some circumstances – of diminished responsibility, but we affirm that diminished responsibility always entails diminished humanity. To say that somebody ‘is not responsible for his actions’ is to demean him or her as a human being. It is part of the glory of being human that we are held responsible for our actions.
__Stott, John. The Cross of Christ
We have two options when it comes to our sins.
We can say, “I did wrong.”
We can say, “Something is wrong with me.”
The ONE THING for today: Some flee from the Cross and hide their sins, some go to the Cross and confess them. It is the latter that find forgiveness, renewal, and a new start.
