Hate Everything

hate-sin

Take some time to consider the following exhortation in your life:

“Hatred of sin as sin, not only as galling or disquieting, a sense of love of Christ in the cross, lies at the bottom of all true spiritual mortification…If you hate sin as sin, every evil way, you would be no less watchful against everything that grieves and disquiets your own soul. “[emphasis mine]   John Owen

 

Questions to ask.

Whatdisquiets your soul? What makes you anxious? What sin do you believe this anxiety is linked to?  What other sins should you hate as a result of thinking through this quote?
