The Not-So-Obvious Sins

Sin will keep you from coming to the Bible, or the Bible will keep you from sinning.  Dig down deeper.  What sins are you guilty of?  – the not-so-obvious-sins…

Killing, stealing, lying, and adultery are obvious sins we try to avoid.  Here are some ‘not-so-obvious’ sins that we often overlook.  God takes sin personally.  As a Christian, though we are forgiven by His grace, our goal is to become more like Jesus.  Take a look at the following list of sins.  See if God convicts your heart on some of them.  Wisdom is found in seeing your sin from God’s point of view. 

Hebrews 10:26-27 “If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.”
