Everyday Bumper Sticker Sin
A guy and his car are standing at the pearly gates. The car is covered with Christian bumper stickers. The guy is trying to talk his way into heaven, but Peter won't budge. The guy says, "But look at my car!" Peter finally compromises and says, "OK, your car can come in..." Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.
Much of the time people don't realize what forgiveness truly means and they believe the sin that separates them from God in the first place, is worth it. And sometimes they look at forgiveness as a license to keep on living in the flesh but when we have a relationship with God, we get the Holy Spirit living in us and THAT is what keeps us from staying comfortable in our sin. You look at Paul talking to the Romans, and he says, “I sometimes fall and do what I don’t want but with Jesus I don’t have to stay down.” We can walk and drive in freedom when we let God’s forgiveness change us…everyday.
