For whilst I held my tongue, * my bones consumed away through my daily complaining. ~ Psalm 32:3
We don’t always like to talk about what happens when we sin and remain unrepentant. Our Psalm this morning reminds us the difference between repentance and ignoring our transgressions. Repentance leads to life and joy; complacency leads to the decay of our very body.
When sin goes unchecked, it deteriorates our very being. So we as Christians are called to repentance and therefore life. To live fully is to dwell in Christ and His righteousness.
Let us therefore not ignore the sin that is slowly killing us, but flee from it, and run towards Christ and his righteousness, always learning to dwell in His goodness.
