There’s nothing as miserable for the sinning Christian as being estranged from God, and nothing so sweet as being restored back to Him.

Rather than living apart from God and His blessing, let’s deal with our sin quickly. The sooner we confess and forsake our sin, the sooner we will discover our joy and peace again.
