If you kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?

I am so glad that God no longer holds our sins against us. What a wonderfully freeing reality we live in, under the blood of Christ. I have a friend who is confused, she wants to follow God but everyone she knows, the entire culture is telling her to do what is displeasing to God- because "everyone does it" so it must be okay. I am glad that God is not confusing. He is very clear with how he wants us to live and has left us both His word and His Spirit. I think it is amazing how they work in unity. The Spirit never guides us to do something that is contrary to God's word. Oh Lord, that I would learn to treasure your word in my heart and love it more than life itself.
