Knowing but not doing

Re: Verse reading – Luke 22:66-71; 23:1-25 (day seven)
“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin.”  (James 4:17)  At the end of life, we may look back and realize that there were no big moments, just a lot of small ones.  God never presents the full picture.  Not to any man.  Not at any moment.  “We see through a glass, darkly”, said the Apostle Paul.  But we do SEE.  That is the point.  We see something of what is required.  Some part of right and justice and obedience.  A step pressed on us by conscience and Spirit.  Not to do it is life’s greatest mistake.  Pilate’s story is, therefore, a tragedy.  Not because he was guaranteed to become a believer.  Rather because he rejected the only opportunity that any of us ever have to find Christ and to find life.  Do what you know!  Stand for truth!  Pilate didn’t.  Will you?
