SINS THAT WE SIN are not always the wrong actions or activities observed by others: Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after (1 Timothy 5:24).
- Sins we hide: Inside sins such as Gossip, Coveting, Lust – I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart (Matthew 5:28).
- Sins of Omission and Inaction: Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17).
- Attitude sins such as hatred and prejudice: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors (James 2:9).
- Influence sins- It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:21-23).
We can cover our sins and wait for God to expose them or we can confess our sins and let the blood of Christ cover them.
