Here's an excerpt from one of my favorite messages by Don Green,
"True repentance should make you examine yourself and repent of any lingering sin in your own life – those rotten attitudes, the broken relationships, the other things that we fall into. Understand that if Christ calls sinners to repent, how much more appropriate is for you and me as His people to repent of our sins? If it's inappropriate for a sinner to live in sin, how much more inappropriate is it for us that belong to Christ, to have any known conscious sin tolerated within our midst?"
