Hidden Sin

IgStuPolice say, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.” Ignorance is not knowing. Stupid is knowing and not doing anything about it. We’re about to move out of ignorance… some will continue into stupidity.

If we are serious about being more like Jesus and holy as God has commanded, we should be proactive is rooting out the hidden sin in our lives and in us. We ought to delve into the dark recesses of our heart and expose forgotten or sin we’re not aware of. We must refuse to be comfortable with our present level of spiritual maturity. Consider the Scripture…

Ps 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!  24 And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!

2 Cor 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!

Ps 26:2 Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and my mind.

Pr 17:3 The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts.

Job 13:23 How many are my iniquities and my sins?  Make me know my transgression and my sin.

Job 34:32 Teach me what I do not see; if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more…

Ps 19:12 Who can discern his errors?  Declare me innocent from hidden faults. 13  Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me!

Pr 4:23 Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.

Lam 3:40 Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the Lord!  (Those 5 words are the key)

It is no shame to be ignorant about sin (But ignorance does not mean you are innocent! Click here.), but it is shameful to be and remain stupid about it. If you are bold, ask God to reveal to you what He sees… and then ask Him to help you get rid of the sin in your life.

    So many of us fail to analyze our lives against the yard stick of the Bible. It is much more comfortable to be ignorant.
