Nr. 144: Against you alone have I sinned, and what is evil in your sight!

Nr. 144:

Psalm 51 6 Against you alone have I sinned, and what is evil in your sight, I have done, that you may be justified when thou speakest, and be clean when you judge.

Most people, even believers are not aware of the dire consequences of sin and its enormous range. Sin creates a separation between us and God even if God is love.

Isaiah 59 2 But your iniquities have made a divorce between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so he does not hear.

Rooms. 3. 23 all have sinned and come short of God's honor.

The sin is first and foremost to violate God's law and lose his pleasure and favor. Here we are all guilty and comes up short, that's why we all need Jesus as it is only and solely in his name there is salvation to be had.

Acts 4. 12 And there is salvation in any other: for there is neither any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

After salvation, we are responsible before God with everything we do

Before we are saved we are constant sinners. But after salvation, we are no longer sinners, even if the fall into sin and do sin. We are new creatures, holy and righteous. This teaches the New Testament, we are not sinners, but righteous.

Rooms. 5. 1. As we now therefore justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

What is sin for a believer?

It misses the vast majority of believers, they do not understand that we are fair and it requires a pletfritt life. I will divide sin into three (3) categories, and try to explain about it.

1) Follow the light we have.
2) Violations of God's word.
3) We sin when we hurt others.

1) Follow the light we have.

God does not require the impossible of us, just what is achievable and that it can be expected of us. There are things I can do now that I could do before, even before I did not get a bad conscience for it. We must and will follow the light we always have, even if it turns out in retrospect that we did not know better. It's like a child and an adult. God does not require us to be adults when we are spiritual children, but by the time the "demands", he of us that we put away childish and mature as believers. By the time you should be teachers teach Paul church in Jerusalem and to the Corinthians he says that they could take only milk, not solid food. But the spiritual development are the basis for how God treats us, and what he at any time require of us.

File. 3. 15 Let us then, as many as are mature, have this mind; and I are different from the mind of something, then God will also reveal to you this, 16 just that, so far we have come, hold up the same track.

We all should keep out of the track we came in and never stop in our spiritual development. The stagnation and decline that really is a shame, not only all the "mistakes" that we do. It is through making mistakes, falling and rising up again that we develop, mature and fostered.

God wants us to grow and mature from 1 grade and step by step and class for class as we grow up to a perfect man. It does not have to skip a class because we grow too fast and can be high on the bulb and it is not good. Perhaps we also fall back and have to start again.

Word. 24. 16 For seven times fall the righteous and stands up again, but the wicked of the calamity.

2) Violations of God's word.

There is a lot wrong, really wrong. We can do "everything" for Jesus, yet it can have no meaning. We can do "small" but it is of great importance, everything depends on what we ARE, not what we DO!

It's a shame to break the word of God, no matter what we or do. It is the most important and most required is not all we do, but we are. We can live like Mother Teresa and allikvel perish if we do not do it with love. We can evangelize the world and pray for the sick and they are healed, but allikvel perish if we do the rest of our lives living in accordance with God's will. A items. one of the world's foremost Bible teachers Derek Prince went on to marry a divorced after he had been a widower as 63 years old. Think of a bad example and such a great sin that would keep the good Bible hour and yet fail so badly on the moral. God's word clearly says that whoever marries a divorced operates at. Also with some passages, I confine myself to five (5) that anyone can stop to ponder.

Matt. 7. 22 Many will say to me on that day, Lord! Lord! have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out devils in thy name done many wonderful works in Your name? 23 And then shall I bear witness for them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity!

1. Kor. 13. 1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And if I possess the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so I can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give food to the poor all that I own, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing.

1. Kor. 9. 27 but I subdues my body and keep it in bondage, lest I preach to others, themselves should be a castaway.

James 2 21 Abraham, our father, he was not justified by works when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith wrought with his works, and that faith was perfected by works, 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness: and he was called God's friend. 24 I see that man is justified by works and not by faith alone

1. Joh. b. 2 6 He that saith he abideth in him, he is guilty and to walk as He walked.

3) We sin when we are offended.

The Christian life to be lived in community with others, therefore it is very necessary and it is of lactation much emphasis on never to be offended, even though you can still do it. A items. is regarding alcohol drinking, it's a shame to put alcohol on the table, if anyone has a problem with it, a weak and strong. The strong should take into account in such cases. This is to socialize with other people, love is important. Do not we sin we are. It can be about food, dress, manners, way of life, etc. As a believer and a Christian, we do everything we can to not hurt anyone, but rather joining us and especially to other believers. This is true regarding our behavior, but not when it comes to doctrine. There we must stand firm and are allowed to say what we believe in, for example. like a loud music and others see it as violently as one should calm down. And do not be anstør for some. Christian freedom is great, when we actually have laws for everything, but not all are helpful. We will only do what is pleasing and delight others, nothing seems to stumble. Not when it comes to following God's word, but in our way we will be obedient and do what we can to not be a stumbling block for some. Includes three (3) passages finally here.

1. Kor. 10. 23 I have laws for everything, but not all benefits, I have allowed everything, but not all edifying. 24 No one seek his own, but all seek the other's best!
28 But if anyone says to you: This is the idol, then refuse to eat it, for his sake that told it to you, and for conscience 'sake! 29 I do not mean one's own conscience, but almost. For why should my liberty judged by another's conscience? 30 If I enjoy it with thanks, why am I ridiculed for what I give thanks for? 31 Whether ye eat or drink, or what ye do, do all to the glory of God! 32 Be not offended both Jews and Greeks, and the church of God, 33 even as I in all strive to please everyone and not think about my own benefit, but for the many, that they must be saved.

Rooms. 14. 1. Take you out of that is weak in faith, without putting you into court over his thoughts! 2 One has faith to eat everything, but that is weak, eats only herbs, 3 the ether, trifle not he who does not eat, and he who does not eat, not the judge who eats! for God has taken care of him. 4 Who are you to judge a foreign journeyman? He stands or falls on its own master, however, he will stand, for the Lord is able to hold him up. 5 The one intends one day above another, the other acts all day just means anyone be fully confident in his own mind!

Gal. 5. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision or uncircumcision anything, but faith which worketh by love.


For non believers, it is really only a sin not to believe in Jesus.
For a believer it is a shame to not be responsible for his life and always live in the light of life in all areas. When we live and walk in the light, we live as children of light who we are!

All sin is fundamentally against God even though it is against other people we do wrong, and we have caused ourselves against anyone, we must in such cases, ask people for forgiveness. Confess your sins to each other and you will be healed scripture says, and it is a condition to experience this promise of healing. It is first and foremost to God to pray for forgiveness, why should we all do like King David when we confess our sins.

Psalm 51 6 Against you alone have I sinned, and what is evil in your sight, I have done, that you may be justified when thou speakest, and be clean when you judge.
