My husband, who is a pastor, has a favorite kind of “call and response” he has taught the members of our congregation. It goes like this:
Question: What do sinners do?
Response: They sin.
We are sinners and no matter how hard we try, we will continue to sin. It’s our nature. However, we can be freed from the burden of our sins when we given them to Jesus. He can do what we cannot. I am reminded of this hymn by Horatius Bonar (1808-1889). Listen and give your sins to the only One who can carry them for you.
