The Friends We Need…

We desperately need to surround ourselves with brothers and sisters in Christ who are truly honest about their sin.  Like John Newton, they can remind us of the gospel time and time again.  These are people who won’t be surprised by your sin when you confess it.  They will say, “Of course you sinned….Come with me to the throne of grace to celebrate the love of your Savior and to find help in your time of need.  Now let me help you understand your heart so that you may continue to obey God.”
