Episode 1162 Show Notes

From the Show

Imagine that I tell my son that he needs to clean his room. Now imagine that he rebels against my instruction and refuses to clean the bedroom. When I confront him about this he says, “I’m so sorry, please forgive me.” Even though I forgive him, that room still needs to be cleaned. See, God calls us to keep the positive requirements of his law, and when we rebel, someone still needs to keep that law.

– Pastor Adriel Sanchez
