Bothered by Sin

in Sin/Temptation

Ever feel "sinful"? That actually can be a good thing. Here's today's Bible Minute.

When you're born again you have a keen sense of your own sinfulness. Listen to 1 John 1:8,10, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Then in Verse 10: "If we say that we have no sin, we make Him [God] a liar, and His word is not in us."

If you're saved today, you will be bothered by some of the things you see happening in the world. You'll be convicted by sin in your life. It's going to cause you to cringe when you think impure thoughts in your own mind.

You have the Spirit of God residing in you, and it makes you feel just terrible when you do things that you know displease the Lord. And that's a good thing!
