How would you explain the difference between unwilful and wilful sinning

Hebrews 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

The above verse from Hebrews does get me concerned at times.

How would you sort of differentiate between wilful and unwilful sinning?

I do still sin and all I can hope for is that it’s unwilful.

Thanks

I see willful sin as when we are willing to accept the sin even while knowing it is wrong. As a result of this we fail to repent.

Willful sin is that which is produced from an unrighteous heart void of Christ and never repented or ashamed of.

Unwillful sin are those moments the righteous get in the flesh and are convicted by the Holy Spirit as they are remorseful and repent. Christians do have weak moments at times as we are not perfect, but being perfected daily.

We all sin. Unwilling sin is sinning in peer pressure, but wilful sinning is constant sinning and also sinning knowing it is wrong but deciding to do it anyway, with no regard to God. The bible implies that wilful sin is more condemn-able than unwilful sin. Its all about the heart, we all fall into temptation, and wilful sin is doing things with no regard to God.
