Too many people form their decisions about what is or isn't sin on their emotions instead of the Word of יהוה (God). I don’t want to discount the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It is certainly possible for us to feel convicted about our sin as a result of His work in us. And we should respond to that prompting but, just because we aren’t "feeling" convicted, doesn't mean that there isn’t sin in our lives that we should respond to.
Besides conviction from the Ruach, are there other ways for you to know if you have unresolved sin? The scriptures seem to indicate at least two other means יהוה uses to point out sin. The first is His Word (His instructions). The second is our commandment keeping brothers and sisters.
Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the Word of יהוה is living and active. Sharper that any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; IT JUDGES THE THOUGHTS AND ATTITUDES OF THE HEART." * יהוה (God's) Word has the ability to judge our thoughts and attitudes. In other words, it has the power to convict us. For many, this has proved to be Truth. In the face of scriptural evidence that something we are doing, thinking or feeling is wrong, we tend to want to revert back to our emotions. “Well, I don’t feel bad or guilty about that (or not doing that),” or “God hasn’t convicted me about that, so I don’t need to give it up.” This is your flesh (natural man) justifying what you want to do or not do and it has serious consequences. If God’s Word reveals an area of sin in our lives, we have a responsibility to take action, whether or not our feelings confirm what we’ve read.
2 Timothy 4:1-3 says, “ In the presence of יהוה and of Messiah Yehoshua (Jesus), who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word: be prepared in season and out of season; CORRECT, REBUKE AND ENCOURAGE--WITH GREAT PATIENCE AND CAREFUL INSTRUCTION." *
James 5:20 says, “Remember this: Whoever TURNS A SINNER FROM THR ERROR OF HIS WAY WILL SAVE HIM FROM DEATH and cover over a multitude of sins.”
