Whatever Happened To Sin? Part 4

There are many cultural myths about what God really says and doesn’t say about sin and human nature.
Myth #1 is that most people think they are good. NOT TRUE!
Myth #2 is that all sins are the same. THEY ARE NOT!
Myth #3 is I can still sin and then ask God to forgive me after. ABSOLUTELY NOT!
As followers of Christ and because of His sacrifice on the cross, we have died to sin. In other words since Jesus died for us and when we came to him through our faith, our sin nature no longer has power over us, we now have the power of Christ.
Why would we continue to go back to the sin that which hurts the heart of God, hurts our own lives and has the potential to hurt so many people around us?
The most miserable people in the world are not non Christians, they are Christians who know the freedom that is available to them yet intentionally disobey God.
Hear the Good News the Apostle Paul shares with us about temptation.
“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
Tomorrow we will hear about the truth that sets us free and what’s so amazing about His amazing grace.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
