Though this future is yet to be realized, believers can enjoy something of that glorious vision today. It is why Christians will speak of that time as “now . . . and not yet.”
We are far better off to just come clean with God (and ourselves, for that matter) and confess that we do have sin because . . . we really do.
Stepping into the light means stepping out of the darkness of old mindsets, preconceived ideas about God that do not take the whole of God’s story into account.
