Sin is a big deal. It’s a really big of matter that Jesus had to come and die on the cross to redeem us and save us from our transgressions. Today I am listing down top three sins that we are still consciously or unconsciously committing even after we have been saved.
1. The sin of pride and arrogance.
Proverbs 11:2 ESV
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.”
Proverbs 16:5 ESV
“Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.”
Pride and arrogance are both dangerous in our Christian walk mainly because they inhibit us to become obedient towards God. Bot make us rely on our own strength and even make us forget that we need God and that we owe everything to him. It makes us think that we know better than Him and that we are capable of running our own lives.
2. The sexual sins
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 ESV
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
The verse above will remind us that we were bought with a price. We no longer belong to ourselves but God’s. When we commit sexual sins we are not just sinning towards God but we are also sinning towards our bodies, defiling the temple of the Holy Spirit.
3. The sin of doubt
This is clearly stated in Romans 14:23:
“But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; FOR WHATEVER IS NOT FROM FAITH IS SIN.
The root cause of doubt is the lack of FAITH. When we live in doubt it inhibits us to declare, claim and live out the promises of God. The bible also tell us that without faith we cannot please GOD.
If you find yourself in one or all of the situations above. Don’t worry, rest assured God is not condemning you.
On the contrary, God is showing He loves you because He’s not letting you stay where you are. He is surfacing all of these things so it can be dealt with once and for all. God promises us victory through Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith ( See Hebrews 12:2).
