Restored innocence is the trailhead to a full and free life in Jesus. Innocence is not earned by our performance; it is a gift of God through the work of Jesus. Without that innocence even at our most broken when we're lost in our failures or abuse, we will not allow Father the access to our hearts that will carry us forward. This is the gospel, that even at our weakest Jesus has cleansed our conscience so that we can engage him without shying away with the delusion of unworthiness. Kyle and Wayne dive into this topic as a follow-up to last week's podcast on re-personalizing our faith so that it grows out of an ever-deepening friendship.
Scriptures explored in this podcast include the Prodigal story in Luke 15, and the perfecting of our conscience by the work of Christ in Hebrews 8-10.
