Bill and Carmen have been having a conversation behind the scenes that they brought to the show today discussing the sin beneath the sin.

I know, I know. Culture hates that word. Oh well. Sin is real. Sin patterns are real. And most of us cycle in and out of bad thinking and behaviors. Life is a journey. Life is hard. And wanting to be more like Jesus doesn’t come naturally to us. The last several weeks have been painful. I’ve shed more tears in the last few weeks, than I did in all of 2018. God’s been doing some heart work on me lately. My older brother Bill (and very wise teacher) has helped me walk through, “what’s the sin behind the sin?” So many times in my life, I have focused on the "behavior modification,” rather than what’s causing me to cycle in and out of the same habits. Coming face to face with your pride, insecurities, and junk is NOT fun. ••• But as Beth Moore said in my bible study today, “Condemnation has no place in intimacy with God. Jesus bore all condemnation on the cross. When you walk with God and He spotlights a negative pattern, it’s always good news. He wants to break the old pattern, and cause a victorious one to emerge.” ??????????????????????????????
