In Romans 3:23, the Bible makes it clear that all people sin and fall short of the glory of God. We all do stupid things that we later regret.
For Christians, Jesus paid the penalty for those mistakes and we can walk confidently knowing that we are forgiven.
But, what about people who struggle with stubborn or stronghold sins – doing the same stupid, regrettable things over and over again. Why do they seem to be caught in an endless cycle of sin?
Permanently overcoming those flaws comes down to how people look at their sin. Do they see it as evil or as being merely wrong?
People who view their sin as simply wrong, experience earthly sorrow concerning the consequences and their reputation. What happens if I’m caught? What do people think of me? What impact does this sin have on my life?
People who view their sin as being truly evil take a different approach. They see the problem through God’s eyes and experience godly sorrow. They see how their sin impacts others.
