That’s a list! To some, that list may be convicting while others start comparing. We justify our sins by looking at the “sin hierarchy” created by man. “Well, at least, I’m not as bad as …” But to God, SIN is SIN.
I believe those who are old enough to read that list can identify themselves as at least one of those nouns. Some of us can describe ourselves with a higher percentage of the list. We have all sinned in some way or another.
You don’t know me. You don’t know the awful things I’ve done in my life, but I do. I know which of those things I’ve been… am. I don’t compare myself to others. That would be almost like playing the blame game. I don’t want to play that game. (Remember this: “Homie don’t play that.” …haha) I know I’m responsible for the sins I’ve committed.
Here’s the best part of that list…IT CAN BE INVISIBLE! Can you totally wipe it from your brain and erase it from your memory? No, I wish! But it can be washed away thanks to Jesus. I know I’ve shared this before and I will keep on sharing it as many times as God tells me to do it.
I was having some down time this morning just praying and thinking. So, this is what came in my mind to do on my blog today. God has someone He wants to read this. He wants me to read this. I know He constantly reassures me that the lists of bad things I’ve done and that list of sins I write in my head is TOTALLY REDEEMED!!! Yelling at myself here: Ya hear mE…REDEEMED!
No heirarchy of sin, no list of bad deeds or labels—SIN IS SIN but with Jesus, it is REDEEMED!
I am redeemed…
THANK YOU JESUS!
