Sinning in Front of God

Are we aware that by keeping our hearts away from God we begin to offend God?

Baruch 1:22

As sinners we decide to follow our own will, desires, and judgement instead of God’s. We lean on our own concept of right and evil. Trying to replace the role which only God should have.

What we don’t see at the moment is that we are committing our sins in front of a God. God, who is always present, sees our trespasses as we are doing them. We have the audacity to not only commit the sin but to block our sight of God in the moment.

When we sin we choose to not see God. We choose ourselves to be the lead and no longer God. In even more severe situations, we see the good God wants us to do but we choose to do evil. We see God’s way but purposely don’t follow.

Let us always have our eyes and hearts to God. Let us pray to not fall into temptation. To keep a humble heart to do God’s will and not our own. If we can always be centered to God may we always follow God’s way.
