Heavenly Father, so often we ignore the dreadfulness of sin. Father, please forgive us for calling good what you have said is evil and what we ultimately see only brings us brokenness and and death. Lord when we see our sin for what it is we cannot help but feel trapped and helpless. How often we strive to redeem ourselves, to hide away our wrong, to make light of it and cover it over with better behaviour. But Lord, how hopeless this is. We long for your deliverer, and we rejoice to see your great rescuer, our Lord Jesus. Help us to trust in his firm salvation, knowing that he has done everything for us and is completely sufficient for us. Please transform us to be more like him day by day.
