Every sin confessed is an invitation for God to work miracles through His grace.
Michael Mangis, author of “Signature Sins”
O Love of God, descend into my heart;
Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling,
And scatter there Your cheerful beams.
Dwell in the soul that longs to be Your temple;
Water that barren soil overrun with weeds and briars
And lost for lack of cultivating.
Make it fruitful with Your dew.
Self-examination is part of the process of seeking Christlikeness…
a process of gradually submitting one’s soul to God’s transforming touch.
I can’t willingly release to God what I have not acknowledged to be part of me,
and I cannot seek to look more like Christ until I know what Christ looks like.
Our signature sins become so familiar to us that we often trust them over the truth.
They become so precious to us that we even forget they are sins.
