Promises That Will Pacify Your Concerns
All of us make mistakes. The key is to acknowledge them, learn, and move on. The real sin is ignoring mistakes, or worse, seeking to hide them.
Man's sin is in his failure to live what he is. Being the master of the earth, man forgets that he is the servant of God.
..................Abraham Joshua Heschel
“What is sin?
It is the glory of God not honored.
The holiness of God not reverenced.
The greatness of God not admired.
The power of God not praised.
The truth of God not sought.
The wisdom of God not esteemed.
The beauty of God not treasured.
The goodness of God not savored.
The faithfulness of God not trusted.
The commandments of God not obeyed.
The justice of God not respected.
The wrath of God not feared.
The grace of God not cherished.
The presence of God not prized.
The person of God not loved.
That is sin.”
― John Piper
Simple Definition of sin
1. transgression of divine law: the sin of Adam.
2.any act regarded as such a transgression, especially a willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle.
3.any reprehensible or regrettable action, behavior, lapse, etc.; great fault or offense: It's a sin to waste time.
A sin can be said to be any thought or action that falls short of God’s will. God is perfect, and anything
we do that falls short of His perfection is called sin.
The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Even when we aren’t aware of it, we commit sin by the things we do, or the things we fail to do, or by the way we think and speak.
We sin in thought, word and deed.
We should all realize that sin starts in the mind. When we allow evil thoughts to enter our mind and stay there, eventually these evil thoughts can spring into action, leading us to sin. We are what we think (Proverbs 23:7).
We oftentimes do not see anything wrong with allowing wrong thoughts into our minds from time to time.. Some of these thoughts might be quite pleasurable and entertaining. But eventually those sinful thoughts will lead us into sin. The result is the trampling of God's law. We should try our best to disrupt that process before it gets started, by not even allowing wrong thoughts into our minds. Evil thoughts and evil communication corrupts good manners.
Also when we exchanged the truth about God for a lie, we misrepresent the truth about God and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator.” The impurities of active sinning have a root. And the root is this: Sin hates the truth of God, and at all times tries to suppresses it, and exchanges it for what sin loves and worships. Sin loves to worship and serve the creature not the Creator. That’s the root of sinning.
Did you realize that you could go through life without ever stealing, lying, hating or breaking a single command from God, all the while perfectly controlling our thoughts, and yet still sin every day of your lives? How is this possible, you many ask?
You can sin by the things we do. But you can also sin by the things that we don't do
James 4:17 tells us, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” Perhaps you have heard of sins of commission, sinning by the actions we take: stealing, lying, committing adultery and so on. But this verse tells us that some transgressions involve sins of omission, sinning by things we omit doing.
James tells us that if we know to do good, and we recognize that we ought to be doing certain things, the failure to do them is a sin. We are not meeting the standard God has set for us. We are missing the mark. Are you call to give service in our church, club, or at work and did not do it conscientiously, we are sinning.
With God's help we are able to chip away everything that isn't like God. Everything that is contrary to or doesn't express the holy character of God.
