Presumptuous Sins

In the New Covenant, God no longer remembers your sins. They are cast into the sea. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sin. Grace people usually don’t want to talk about sin but it can still be a problem.

David prays that God would help keep him from presumptuous sins. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me” (Psalm 19:13 NKJV).

Sin is sin. Sin is harmful both to us and those around us. Even though God does not record our sins, He does see them. He hates those things that hurt us. Presumptuous sins are sins of pride and arrogance. “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18 NKJV).

Pride is a shift from looking to God as all-encompassing resource to oneself for the answers. It is falling below the glory of God—has standard of knowing what is best for us. “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12 NKJV).

Look to Jesus and receive His transforming power. In doing so you won’t let presumptuous sins have dominion over you.
