Secret Sins

Does the devil keep reminding you of your past sins? Here is a story to tell him.

A much loved-minister of God once carried a secret burden of long- past sin deep in his heart. He had committed the sin many years before, during his Bible school training.

No one knew what he had done, but they did know he had repented. Even so, he had suffered years of remorse over the incident without any sense of God’s forgiveness.
      
A woman in his church deeply loved God and claimed to have visions in which Jesus Christ spoke to her.

The minister, skeptical of her claims, asked her, “The next time you speak to the Lord, would you please ask Him what sin your minister committed while he was in Bible school.” The woman kindly agreed.     

When she came to the church a few days later the minister asked, “Did He visit you?” She said, “Yes.”
      
      “And did you ask Him what sin I committed?”
      
      “Yes, I asked Him,” she replied
      
      “Well, what did He say?”
      
      “He said, ‘I don’t remember.’

  1. I love this. Thank you very much. Accepting forgiveness is sometimes harder than giving forgiveness to others, because we find it hardest to forgive ourselves. I wonder why we hold onto unforgiveness towards ourselves?

      • The devil is the accuser, but often we have made judgments and other sinful responses to hurts from others and life. These judgments, lies and inner vows can keep us in strongholds of bondage until we recognise and repent of of our judgments too. Repenting of judgments, renouncing vows and reversing lies are important steps towards forgiving self, others and God and are such blessed relief towards freedom.
