Do You Cherish Sin?

I have the ”s” word on my mind this morning, and although the Bible tells us that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23) this is why I love this verse because it gives direction for when we feel our prayers aren’t being heard

The key to this verse is ”cherished sin.” God asks us to lead a blameless life rather than a righteous one. He knows because of our inherent nature from Adam and Eve, that we cannot, not sin. Therefore, until we go to be with Jesus, we will continue to sin because we are sinners

God uses the word blameless (Psalm 119:1) because that means that we try our best to live for God, every day, and then when we mess up, we turn away from that sin, ask for forgiveness, and continue on God’s path for our lives

So, why do I love this verse? Because it shows the difference between living a blameless life and continuing to live with “cherished” sin

Cherished means “to hold something dear” in other words, you protect it, you enjoy it, you even love it

Friends, we are all on a journey, and therefore, it’s not about judging each other, or picking out our faults, but this verse is merely pointing out that when we pray, our hearts need to be aligned with God’s

He is Righteous, and we need to be blameless, because then, we know that He is listening to every word we say
