If You Don’t Need Mercy


The word “sin” has fallen out of favor. We talk about struggles, brokenness, or unwanted behaviors (words we use all the time at Regen), but acknowledging sin actually opens us to divine mercy in a different, much-needed, way. I think most of us have a love-hate relationship with mercy. We love mercy because we need it, and we hate mercy for the same reason. The fact that God is merciful is...

God desires something better for us. But the way is dangerous. It seems our unconscious methods for avoiding God’s face are endless. Have you considered what ways you may subtly or not-so-subtly try to...
