TLIC Daily. Day 223. August 11: Godly grief…worldly grief.

“To live is Christ” does not mean that we won’t sin (obviously). But it does mean that when we sin, and when we are confronted, we have a chance to respond with godly grief. This is what the life of Christ in us will produce. Sadness unto life. True contrition. Sorrow over the sin itself, not just the consequences of the sin. Grief that results not in the loss of relationships but in the reconciliation of relationships.
