Day 14: James 4:17 ~ So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. Main Blog

July 27, 2020 Posted by


Day 14 ~

James 4:17 ~ So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

Sin ~ When self is estranged from God.

A lot of people like to point at the perceived sin of someone else. Perhaps it makes the accuser feel better about their own sin?

I can accuse you and you can accuse me of sin. It doesn't really help either of us. In fact, the harsher we judge others, the harsher the judgment levied upon our own selves.

I sin daily. So, let's get that out of the way now. Don't be surprised if I let a wordy durd fly. Don't be surprised if you see me get angry and my lid flip. Don't be surprised if I have one serving too many of Pinot Grigio while watching the sunset or if a song I shouldn't be listening to pops up on pandora and I don't change the channel. Many a preacher and better men and women than me may disagree with this next statement but it is my truth. These things don't make me feel estranged from God as long as I know in my heart that I am doing my best to move closer to God. But, I digress.........

One time I was so bad, a sin I committed required me, being my own accuser, to stand before the household of faith, make acknowledgments for my sin, and disqualify myself before all.

So, please don't think more highly of me than you ought to think. I am just a man. I sin daily. I know to do better and sometimes, in the moment, just don't do better.

With that said, the keywords for me are "me being my own accuser". No one has the right to judge you or me. You aren't really even qualified to judge yourself.

I may be a wretched man but I have found peace at the mercy seat of Christ. Spiritually speaking, my life is hidden in the life of Christ and His righteousness has been imputed to me for righteousness.

While here at home in this temple of flesh I will err but I live permanently in peace knowing in whom I have believed.

I find peace by simply doing my best each day.

I am doing my best to curse less.
I am doing my best to drink less.
I am doing my best to filter what goes into my mind.
I am doing my best to show forth love and kindness when internally I am angry.
I work hard to be a better man today than I was yesterday.

Me being my own accuser, I am doing my best and that feels good.
You being your own accuser, are you doing your best?

Regardless of your answer, I will take your word for it.

Oh, now I need to bring this post around to weight loss and wellness? LOL. You knew that was coming, didn't you?

As is relates to doing your best with weight loss and wellness? How are things going for you? Will you do your best this week to get things on track? Reach out to me and let's hold each other accountable.

I got goals this week. I will just do my best and let go of the rest.

I hope today you will forgive yourself for any past wrongs, big or small. Just do your best today. As long as you do your best you will never feel estranged from God.
