Sin is still Sin….
We live in a world that has tried very hard to eliminate one little 3 letter word from our
Vocabulary. Why would that be?
II Cor 4:3,4 “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them.
One of the many beauty’s of scripture is that it never grows old or changes. That is because God authored it so that all generations would have truth.
Mal 3:6 “For I, Jehovah, change not; therefore ye, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.”
It is up to us what we do with that truth. We know we are to keep God’s commandments but listen to how scripture even makes obedience to our loving God even clearer. So in scripture what is sin?
James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is sin.”
Do you ever find yourself blaming your sin on some other person, place or thing that influenced you?
James 1:14,15 “But everyone is tempted, when they are drawn away of THEIR OWN LUST, and enticed, then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.”
There is One foundation that can help us in our battle! But, even when we have Jesus as our foundation it takes more than words to be a disciple.
II Tim 2:19 & 22 “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows these who are His”, and “Let everyone who names the name of Christ DEPART from iniquity.” “FLEE also youthful lusts; but PURSUE righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart”.
Check your heart and your motives on all things. God the Holy Spirit will let you know if it sin.
James 4:17″Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”
