I came across a very helpful list in Murray G. Brett’s book “Growing Up In Grace” that is taken from the Church of Scottland’s 1651 “Humble acknowledgement of the sins of the ministry.” The list struck me as important, VERY important… so I’m going to make a series of posts, each containing 1 or 2 of these things you and I don’t typically repent over, but should.
- Practical legalism – offering fleshly, dutiful, legal obedience rather than gospel obedience, that is, the obedience that comes from faith in Christ.
- Not preaching the gospel to myself daily, nor taking delight in it for my own holiness
- Ignorance of God, His holy character, and His holy and just ways.
Are there any you would add?
