LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

The Chief Burdon of the Lord's Child

The chief burden of the Lord's children is sin. This is the main cause of all their sighs and groans, from the first quickening breath of the Spirit of God in their hearts until they lay down their bodies in dust.

The humble, penitential, minute confession of sin will . . . keep the conscience tender, create a watchful spirit within, sanctify the heart, and draw us closer and closer to the Cross, and to the Christ of the Cross.
Thus go to Jesus.
He is with you . . . in all your concerns, in all your trials, in all your blessings, in all your sorrows and in all your joys.
His dear eye is ever upon you for good.
He loved you with an everlasting love, and with loving kindness drew you to Himself.
Veil no secrets from Him.
Keep an open heart with Christ.
If your love is cold, He will warm it.
If your spirit is depressed, He will raise it.
If your corruptions are strong, He will subdue them.
The oftener you come the more welcome you will be.
You cannot weary nor wear Him out!

Cristina,
So true and the negative effects of sin not only grieve the Holy Spirit, but causes us problems in the here and now. Many times sin is it's own punishment.

Praise God that through Christ we have an answer...

Cristina,
This was much needed today.
Thank you.
And it brought a tear to my heart. Sometimes my eyes don't cry, but my heart does.

You are so right, sometimes the sin is it's own punishment.

It is so true. The devil comes disguised as an angel of light to "relieve" us of this guilt by our own means, but the only relief is found in Jesus Christ.
