Taking Responsiblity for Our Actions

19 04 2011

Last time we talked about taking responsibility for our faith, today we are going to talk about taking responsibility for our actions. God knew man would make the choice to sin, and so He made a way back for us through Jesus Christ our savior.


            I wonder these days if it doesn’t grieve God more that we don’t own up to our actions lead to sin, than the fact that we sin in the first place.


          I know as a parent when my children did something wrong, which I expected to happen from time to time, what disappointed me the most was when they didn’t take responsibility for their actions, because I knew without that, they couldn’t mature and were destined to repeat the action over and over again.


          Taking responsibility for our sin by confessing and repenting of it breaks the cycle of sin, allowing us to learn, grow and mature. And we are reconciled with God by our confession because Jesus paid the price for our sin so we become the men and women God create us to be.


          The next time you sin (which we have to expect will happen) quickly turn to God and take responsibility for your actions, whether they were in word, thought or deed.
