Or maybe a better question is why do we sin? Two things sparked my interest in my daily reading this morning Proverbs 28:13
“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”
After that I read Hebrews 4:15
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.”
The reason the Proverbs verse struck me is because in my Celebrate Recover Step program I just completed we talked about confessing our sins James 5:16.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
So why did Jesus not sin?
I believe the answer lies in the fact in order for Jesus to be sacrificed for or sin he had to have no blemish. He was tempted multiple times but did not sin. Since Jesus did not sin why does man sin? No one will know. Is that true? Other people may not know. Sin can be hidden. But is it really hidden?
