The Blessing of Knowing our Sins
2 Pet 2:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ... John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.
Words of Ministry
...Daily we have to study God's Word carefully so that we will see what is sinful. The more we see our sins, the more we have to tell the Lord, "God, show me in these matters that Christ is my victory and my supply." Brothers and sisters, if we want to grow, the light of the truth is indispensable. The light of the truth will reveal our mistakes and show us our own vulnerability. Once the light of the truth exposes our condition, our capacity will be increased, and the more our capacity is increased, the more we can assimilate. What is grace? Grace is God doing something for us. For us to grow in grace means that we need God to do more things for us. Suppose God has done five things for me already. But there are still three things which God has to do for me. My need has increased; therefore, I need God to do more for me. Herein lies the relationship between truth and grace: Truth exposes our need, while grace supplies our need. Truth shows us where our lack is, while grace fills up that lack. Hallelujah! God has not only truth but also grace! In the Old Testament, men failed repeatedly because they had only the truth; they did not have grace. They had the law, but they did not have the strength to keep the law. Thank the Lord that He has shown us the truth and supplied us with grace! Hallelujah!
