A lot of people ask forgiveness for all the sins they will do during the day in thought, word and deed. What hope is there in it? Will our lives never become better? Is it meant to be that we sin our entire live and then when we die and we are perfect?
The hope is that we will we will take on the "image of Christ" as we walk closer to him. Consider this verse:
So, while we will not achieve total perfection on Earth, that doesn't stop us from this hope.
The lord will look with favor upon those people that are constantly convicted of their sin and attempt to avoid it.
The lord will have no compassion or mercy on you if you continue to deliberately sin without regard to the truth.
But do not continue to sin so that grace may increase!
