Posts tagged ‘SINS’


There are so many people out there with secrets, with torment and pain.  We go on knowing that what we are doing is wrong.  Believe me, I know this, because I’m one of those.  I’m certain you are too.  You have something you haven’t told others about yourself or there is something that you do that you know you shouldn’t.  You try not to, but it happens. Sometimes we may do it and not even realize it until it’s out there–like a lion released from it’s cage!  I could start listing specific things, but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.  WE ALL SIN.

Most of us judge our sins by others’ sins.  We tend to think our sin is better or “cleaner” than someone else’s sin so it’s not so bad.  Some of our sins are culturally accepted so what’s really bad about it?  We think such sins are just “ok.”  It’s not.  It’s still dark, ugly and of the devil.  Anything that is “of the devil” is NOT ok.  Still, we don’t think that way… we don’t see the sin for what it truly is and keep on doing it, not concerned with what it may be doing to ourselves or to those around us.

What is it doing to your TESTIMONY?

I have an unspoken prayer request for someone I know who needs God’s strength to overcome sin.  We all need that.  We all need to pray for each other.  We need GOD’s strength to get satan off our back and to pull away from all the sins that plague us.

Prayer is power!  We are blessed with this power in the present world …helping us prepare for the world of reward promised to us by the blood of JESUS!

Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”

Sin is Sin








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…
