If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves.
1 John 1:8a
We cannot deny our sinfulness. Even the best of believers may be tempted with the biggest of sins. Sin denies people the power of God in this life and the presence of God in the next. The recognition of sin is the beginning of salvation. We cannot lead ourselves astray. Both outward practice and inward purity matter. Decisions always begin as desires but end as definitions. “Take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5). Are you dealing with sin? Take the next right step. Admit your sin and seek forgiveness.
Pray for the power to take the next right step.
