Sin and how to be Forgiven…..
Do you feel you are capable of sin?? Sin is a word that our world would like to believe is no longer relevant but the word of God is relevant for all ages and never changes.
If sin is real today, and it is based on God’s word, then our sins remove us from a relationship with God and spending eternity with God which involves so much more than 80 or 90 years on this earth. To have that relationship be restored requires we be justified or freed of our sins.
That being the case the question becomes can I in my human state restore that relationship?
Rom 3:10 “As it is written, there are none righteous, no, not one.”
Rom 3:23 For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
“Let a man go to a psychiatrist and what does he become? An adjusted sinner”
“Let a man go to a physician and what does he become? A healthy sinner”
“Let a man achieve wealth and what does he become? An affluent sinner”
“Let a man go to church, sign a card, turn over a new leaf and what does
he become? A religious sinner”
Isa 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags, and we all do fade as a leaf, and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away.”
Now that we recognize we are all sinners what does it mean?
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
There is a solution to sin for both those professing to know Christ as their Savior and those not sure.
I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.”
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Have you recognized that you are a sinner in need of a Savior this morning? And have
you asked Jesus to save you from your sin.
When you sin, GO TO THE SOURCE OF FORGIVENESS; GO TO JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!
Pass this on to someone who has not heard the good news!!!
