Never Got Caught


What is our standard of guilt: committing sin or getting caught?

A man filling out a job application blank came to the question, "Have you ever been arrested?" His answer was "No." The next question, which asked "Why?", was meant for those who had answered the first part in the affirmative. Nevertheless, the applicant answered it with "Never got caught." That was the truth.

He had sin in him, but he did not have it on him simply because a policeman hadn't been there at the opportune moment. But the sin that is in us in the sight of God is also on us, as we are answerable to God. That is, the sin is on us unless it is on the Savior, and then it can never be on us again, since He bore it for those who put their trust in Him. There are not three places in the universe where sin can be. Your sin is either on yourself or on the Savior.

If we say we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.   But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:6,7)

1.What is our standard of guilt, committing sin or getting caught?

2. Which do we value more, walking in the light or in darkness?

3. How should “fellowship with one another” and the cleansing blood effect my attitude towards my sins and guilt?
