Job 13:23

Job 13:23…”How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my transgression and my sin.” Job begs to have his sins revealed to him. A Christian is willing to understand the worst of himself, and desires to know his transgressions to turn from them and grow in holiness. We are to examine ourselves carefully, because we are easily deceived by our pride. Our default is to trust the lofty view we have of ourselves, and defend all our thoughts, actions, and words as righteous. However, God’s word humbles us and causes us to see our desperate need for repentance and faith in Jesus.
