VerseD: Luke 12:3

Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops.
Luke 12:3, ESV

We may think we can get away with private sins and things nobody was around to see, hear, or know.

But God sees and knows all, and we will stand before Him one day.

VerseD: Romans 6:14

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 6:14, ESV

This may be one of the hardest things for us to learn and know: that our sin only has as much control as we let it have over us. God’s grace, imparted through Christ’s atonement and by the Holy Spirit, frees us from sin’s power.

VerseD: James 4:17

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
James 4:17, ESV

Are you loving your neighbor?

Do you simply pass by the person in need or simply respond “I’ll pray for you” instead of helping when able?

Jesus was inconvenienced by the cross. We can at least change a tire, listen to a sad story, and be a little late sometimes.

To not may be sin.

VerseD: Proverbs 15:31

The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.
Proverbs 15:31 ESV

Whether being talked out of a stupid idea or convinced of sin and separation from God, listening to wise advice (telling you you are stupid or wrong) will save your life.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17, ESV

Through the Holy Spirit and by the power of the Son’s sacrifice and resurrection, the Father frees us from the chains of sin and death that bind our minds, hearts, and souls, and eventually even our bodies.

VerseD: 1 Peter 2:16

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
1 Peter 2:16 ESV

Freedom is the ability to choose. We are free to choose sin (from which we have been freed), but why would we want to use our freedom to slap God in the face rather than love Him?

VerseD: 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9, ESV

There is no forgiveness without confession and repentance.

Give your sin to God, and find peace.

If it helps, tell a trusted Christian brother or sister.
