I should preface this post with the comment that these thoughts are not necessarily mine – just notes I made during the study that I thought worth recording.
Would we allow strangers, friends, family to insult our mother (or indeed, sister, brother, father, friend)? Probably not…
Why then do we allow the Name of Jesus to be insulted? Why do we not react?
When we sin, do we only feel remorse, or do we actually repent? Are we sufficiently aware of the distinction?
