Answer this from an honest heart: Ever lied (even once)? Stolen (the value is irrelevant)? Then you're a lying thief. Bad news huh? There's more. Have you had sex out of marriage? If so, you're a fornicator. Jesus said, "Whosoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart." If you have hated someone, the Bible says you're a murderer. What's more, you have a conscience (con-science means "with knowledge"), so when you sin, you do it with knowledge it's wrong.

1. What is Sin? - Transgression of God's Law

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

(1John 3:4)

2. Where did sin come from? - Adam in the garden of Eden

(Romans 5:12) "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world. and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned :"


3. Who has sinned? - Everyone has sinned.

(Isaiah 53:6) ",All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

(Romans 3:23) "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God:"


4. What is sin's result - Death and separation from God.

(Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Bearing in mind that God is perfect, and that He has seen your thought life, when you stand before Him on Judgment Day will you be innocent or guilty? You know you will be guilty, and end up in Hell. Perhaps you don't believe that. That means there's more bad news for you, because it will happen anyway no matter what you believe. That brings us to the good news: "God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." Jesus Christ took your punishment, then He rose from the dead and defeated the grave. That's good news because if you repent and trust Him, God will forgive you and grant you everlasting life - what better news could there be! 


5. What is the hope for mankind? - God's love.

(Romans 5:8) "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."


6. What can be done about it? - Confess Christ.

( Romans 10:9-10) "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. {10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."


If you have never made a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus and would like to trust Him to save you from you sin, would you pray from the heart crying out to God about your sin asking for His forgiveness and submiting your life to Him.

If you prayed that prayer would you please email us at the church so that we may rejoice with you in your new life in Christ.

Now, read the Bible daily and obey what you read, and God will never let you down.
