Do we try to approach GOD with the attitude, "our sins are not so wrong" or "others do much worse"? Galatians 6:3, "For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself". One unrepentant "small sin", "white lie", or "hurtful word" actually CONFRONTS OUR "UNTAINTED" GOD. But when HIS HOLINESS exposes our UNHOLINESS, we PROVE that we no longer APPROVE of our arrogance and ignorance. HERE'S THE GREAT NEWS; we don't have to keep dwelling upon how sinful we are, or how detestable we are when compared to GOD! We can come before GOD, contrite, humble AND JOYFUL because when we see HIS HOLINESS, we see WHO WE CAN BE! Now that's EXCITING, REMARKABLE, UNFATHOMABLE; IT'S JUST "TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, GOOD NEWS! Proverbs 2:1-6, "...treasure up MY commands...inclining your heart to understanding...search as if for hidden treasures...you will understand the love of the LORD and find the knowledge of GOD..." IT'S JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, "GOOD NEWS".
