When the dirt of sin clogs up God’s communication line, you will not hear Him the way you should or see Him the way you should or enjoy Him the way you should until things are made right. Why? At sin’s deepest level, it is only God that can redeem you and restore you. If you sin against me, I can remove my bitterness, but I can’t remove your guilt. God can do that. He always will, and He always does through Jesus Christ.
