As we live out our day to day lives, it can become easy for us to lose sight of Christ, and begin to live as though we're in control. This can lead to a silent acceptance of sin in our lives. When this happens, we need to own the sin and ask that the Lord cleanses us from it. We can, at this point, remember the joy that forgiveness has brought to us. Since we have been saved through Christ's blood, we can seek to have that joy renewed every day.
