Wrong Attitudes About Sin – Part 2.
“And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent. And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou. And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent. Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God. So Samuel turned again after Saul, and Saul worshipped the Lord.” 1 Samuel 15:27-31 (KJV)
Today we will look at two more wrong attitudes about sin.
Be aware and do not have them.
“I’m guilty, but I have excuses.”
Saul had excuses as well (1 Samuel 13:11 KJV).
In this case, Saul says he sinned: “Because of others.”
Saul is blaming others for his sin.
He said that the people brought the sheep.
Isn’t this the same with us?
We blame others:
“The children, the husband, the wife, the government, the laws, the problems, etc.”
“Not the same as others. Saul compared himself with others.”
Even today, you still compare yourself with others, isn’t it?
Did you know that the Bible allows us to compare?
But, do you know with who?
We can ourselves compare with Jesus, our Lord. (1 Peter 2:21)
Having good intentions.
Saul said that he had good intentions.
He kept the animals to bring them as sacrifices to the Lord.
“I am guilty, but I’m not giving up.”
Saul doesn’t want to give up on his pretensions.
He doesn’t want to lose his job.
Saul doesn’t want to give up his sin.
Instead of giving up on pride and sin:
Saul continued to live in the same way.
However, he lost God’s blessing and Samuel’s friendship, but he still didn’t give up his sin.
When you don’t see your sin as sins, you will repeat them.
Application for the Christian life:
Do not use excuses to sin.
Get rid of your own desires.
Repent and change your life to be like Jesus.
