No Sin Is Private

Kyle Bonham

1 Cor. 5:6-7 - Your boasting (glorying) is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

I was reading Tozer this morning and was reminded, "No sin is private." It may be done in secret but it is not private, particularly for us as leaders.

Tozer writes, "It is a great error to hold, as some do, that each man’s conduct is his own business unless his acts infringe on the rights of others. 'My liberty ends where yours begins,' is true, but that is not all the truth. No one ever has the right to commit an evil act, no matter how secret. God wills that men should be free, but not that they be free to commit sin.…"

As Christians, I don't know why, but we sometimes believe that our unchristian conduct can somehow be kept in our own backyard.  Which, by the way, is impossible for those of us called to serve and lead God's people.

Tozer writes, "The evil birds of sin fly far and influence many to their everlasting loss. The sin committed in the privacy of the home will have its effect in the assembly of the saints. The minister, the elder, the deacon, the teacher who yields to temptation in secret becomes a carrier of moral disease whether he knows it or not. The church will be worse because one member sins. The polluted stream flows out and on, growing wider and darker as it affects more and more persons day after day and year after year."

Guys, this is especially true of us!

My prayer is that God would show to us this day the horror of the consequences of our sin, big or small; but even greater, may He regularly remind us of the sweet and marvelous grace and mercy and forgiveness we are gloriously allowed to wallow in!

FORGIVEN! It just doesn't get any better than that!

May God keep us pure and faithful, for His glory. Amen.

Your pastor,
mark
