Bible verses about Recognition of Sin
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Exodus 19:22-25   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Deuteronomy 5:4-5 further expounds on this. The people's rejection was at least partly based on their own accurate recognition of their sinfulness. Despite the fact that they were cleaned up, their recognition of their sinfulness—when confronted with God's holiness, which was demonstrated by the mountain quaking, lightning cracking huge peals of thunder, and the trumpet blaring—was why God accepted their proposal immediately. "Stop them from coming any closer," He told Moses. Therefore, their refusal to draw near to God was based on a correct assessment of their unacceptability to do the job of a priest—despite the fact that they had cleansed themselves and their clothing, externally.

Luke 7:42   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Jesus draws a direct correlation between acts of love directed toward Him and the recognition of the enormity of the forgiven sins, as contrasted to the payment made to remove our indebtedness.

We are obligated to love Him, and if the recognition is strong, we are virtually driven to do so due to grasping the enormity of what we have been saved from in contrast to the tremendous value of what we are now free to pursue. Could we, like the Ephesian church in Revelation 2:1-7, have left our first love because we no longer make an effort to remember these things?

Luke 15:14-19   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

The Parable of the Prodigal Son unveils a clear progression from awareness of pain arising from want and recognition of sin then on to sorrow for what he had become and done. Repentance, forgiveness, and acceptance were the fruit.
