Bible Ballistics: BBs #652 What Are YOU Doing With Sin???
Sin is not a word that most want to think about, much less talk about today; yet it is the pivotal principal of God’s amazing grace to those who will come to HIM. This is not only important; it is absolutely imperative for people to respond to God’s call to salvation; for unless we recognize that we are sinners we will never have a need for a Savior. I want to share what God’s Word says about sin with you.
“Blessed is he
whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man
unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.” Psalm 32:1-2
Jesus is the only solution to the sin issue—he took care of it for all who will believe.
“Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet
to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints
13 Who hath delivered us
from the power of darkness,
and hath translated us
into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption
through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:” Colossians 1:12-14
Jesus paid the price for our sin, redeeming (to buy back from sin, death and hell) us back to Himself, forgiving our sin, by His blood. What are you doing with your sin?
“For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely
by his grace
through the redemption
that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth
to be a propitiation through faith
in his blood,
to declare his righteousness
for the remission of sins
that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say,
at this time
that he might be just,
and the justifier
of him which believeth
in Jesus.” Romans 3:23-26
And Paul goes on in Romans to show our need for this “redemption that is in Christ Jesus”:
“For the wages of sin
but the gift of God
is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
We are all sinners by birth and by choice, but God has made provision for our salvation—Jesus–the only way to God!
“For God so loved the world,
that he gave
his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world;
but that the world through him
might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him
is not condemned:
but he that believeth not
is condemned already,
because he hath not believed
in the name of the only begotten
Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness
rather than light,
because their deeds were evil.” John 3:16-19
The question is relatively simple— “Have you chosen to believe in Jesus, or do you love “darkness rather than light”? I pray that you will consider Jesus! He is the only way to God.
“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.” John 14:6
May you choose wisely—I pray that you will hear His voice and respond in repentance and faith. And while you may fool others—you can’t fool God!
Amen and Amen!!!
