God designed us to feel remorse over sin in order to produce repentance that leads to victory. This leaves us with no regrets. But the sorrow of the world works death.2 Corinthians 7:10 TPT
God’s desire for us is to not just see our sin, but to be motivated to change so that we become loving people. When we only see our sin and get frustrated, depressed, or hopeless about it, then we miss the point of acknowledging it! Sin stops us form being close to God and others, so becoming aware of it and learning to live God’s way is making progress to becoming close to God and others! Take time to read 2 Corinthians 7:8-12 to understand more what God’s stance on repentance is and how you can obey that scripture today.
