Our Greatest Burden

Sin is the Christian’s heaviest
burden–and his greatest grief.

“We are lying if we say we have fellowship
with God–but go on living in darkness.”
1 John 1:6

Repentance is not only a sorrowing for
sin–but also a turning away from it;
the throwing down of the weapons of
our warfare against God.

If we truly love God, we will . . .
forsake our sins,
abandon our idols
and mortify our lusts.
An honest soul cannot do otherwise;
anything short of that would be hypocrisy.

The upright man is the one who “fears
God–and turns away from evil.” Job 1:8

– Arthur W. Pink
