Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
This one small sentence has convicted me over and over in my lifetime. Not by reading it, but by the Holy Spirit whispering it in my heart. Many, many times I have considered walking away, or have actually walked away, only to turn around and do the right thing for someone. It usually involves me stepping out of my comfort zone, which is why it happens this way. This isn’t because I am mean and nasty at heart- it is about my own insecurities. But God makes me brave. He has helped me to be “bold and stout-hearted” when I need to be.
Lord God, I am thankful. When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted. Amen
