Shifting Our Focus

Sin is a big deal. It cost Jesus his life. As Christians, we are called to set aside our sin. We need to recognize it and repent of it. But sometimes I find myself focusing more on my sin than my Savior. That’s a problem.

When I focus on my sin, I turn inward. Instead of turning to the cross, I turn to myself. I begin to think that my standing before God is based on what I do (and don’t do). The more I sin, the worse I feel. The less I sin, the better I feel. As if a thousand sins or a single sin makes me any more or any less in need of a Savior. See your sin for what it is. But always fix your eyes on the Savior.
