I Confess. I Am The Person Who…

– gossips about everyone

– treats other disrespectfully

– is prejudiced

– would drink and drive and end up injuring innocent people

– would harm child

– watches porn

……

I am all of these things except for the mercy of God.

Romans 3:23

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

We are all sinners and every conceivable sin we would do except for God’s grace.

Ephesians 4:17-24

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 

Let’s not look at each other and compare sins to see which one is worst. No sin is worst than another for all sin separates from God.

So next time you hear about some horrid thing someone did, remember you too are no better than that person because you too are a sinner. The only thing that can make you any different is if you have accepted God into your heart.
