If you fail to do what you know is right, you are sinning.
This verse (James 4:17) hits me hard, and humbles me, and draws me to my knees because I know there are little things I ignore yet before God they are sin.
Think of the “little” things we do against the ways of God. The acts, thoughts, or the words we speak, the things we justify and ignore what is right – this, before God is sin.
We have a tendency of grading and weighing sin and yet God calls it all sin, big or small.
Thank God for His undeserved grace and mercy toward us that He sacrificed His only Son, Jesus, to shed His blood for all of us; the blood that cleanses us without end. (1 John 1:7)
God forgives and cleanses us from ALL sin.
Jesus Is Lord!
