What is Sin
Genesis 18:20, 19:24 (KJV)
20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
Romans 6:23 (KJV) – For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God hates sin. God loves the sinner. God’s gift to man is Eternal Life through Christ Jesus.
To have Eternal Life, we must receive The Gift. We must receive salvation through the blood of our Lord Jesus.
Genesis 6:13 (KJV) – And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
How much does God hate sin? Sin is VERY SERIOUS to God. It is not to be taken lightly. We cannot play in sin and expect God to overlook our action.
Everyday and every moment, we can choose life or death. We can choose to obey God in righteousness or obey the devil in sin. God gives us a free will choice, just as he did Adam and Eve.
It takes the blood of a perfect sacrifice to forgive sin. The devil hates to hear about Jesus’ blood. Sin is so horrible, that God required blood for atonement, blood of a spotless animal.
Romans 5:8 (KJV) – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
How much does God love the sinner? He sent His only Son to die on a cross as the final sacrifice for our sin.
When you understand how much God hates sin, when you understand how much God loves each one of us, you better understand His Grace.
Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay and cost you more than you want to pay.
Say no to sin and YES TO JESUS!
