Repentance

We had Ed Anton in town on the weekend of the 10th, who taught us about Repentance, all Saturday long. It was inspiring and encouraging. I was listening to him, and I felt inside: "YES! YES! This is Christianity! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!"
He really helped me understand how to correctly "rebuke" my brothers and sisters (Elencho in Greek), and I had a clearer idea of godly living. He describes it as a homeostatis of holiness. Essentially, we need to target perfection and see sin as unacceptable, although be full of grace when we do fall in sin. The trick is NOT to see sin as acceptable somehow. No "well, we're not perfect, we're bound to sin" kind of stuff... more of a "I'm living for God, Amen!" kind of thing.
