Admitting Sin

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.

Our biggest problem that keeps us from coming against our sin is the unwillingness to call sin by the name sin. We choose to say things like, “I messed up; I are a mistake; I goofed”. When we don’t recognize our misdeeds and hurtful words and thoughts as sin, when we fail to recognize the seriousness f them we fail to ask God for forgiveness, we repeat them and we start to feel comfortable with them as a normal part of our lives. Let us learn to be honest with ourselves. Let us call sin, sin so we can put it to death on the cross of Jesus and get it out of our hearts, minds and lives.
