What is sin? Sin is a mistake or fault unacceptable on Earth as well as in Heaven. And people have sin because it is the desire of our hearts….
I use ‘OUR’ because i am also human, and i make mistake and i am not exempted…
The disobedience of one man resulted for the sufferings of many people but the sufferings of one man result to the life of many people.
15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
In early days of my life I always hear the story of Adan ad Eve, the serpent and the fruit. That they are the reason why people of the Earth are sinners. Yes, this is true because they did not obey God’s instruction not to eat that Fruit, but because the serpent tease Eve, she encourage Adan to eat the fruit as well (Read the book of Genesis 3 ). But on the new testament, Because of God’s love to His creations which is the Man, He has sent His Begotten Son to save us from our sins… (John 3:16) that’s why He said “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.. John 14:6”
if we will relate the SIN’S topic, before we were born we are a sinner, punishment has been given and punishment has been serve up to now, remember the snake, He will bite by the Woman’s siblings right? and The Man will need to plant before he eats because man needs to cultivate the soil first for them to put the seeds…(Genesis 3)
But come to think of it, where does our Sins came from? Is it from the serpent? from Satan? or from ourselves?
Many will answer this from Satan, from serpent or from ourselves…
And according to our lesson’s earlier the sin came from the desire of our Heart.
It’s inside our heart. The sin is from heaven because Lucifer is an angel from heaven drop off to the land, but Sin is not created by God, but the sin is the negative burning desire of our hearts. We let the pain, negative thought stay in our hearts that results to the negative impact in our life that lead us to commit a mistake or a sins…. God given us a brain, heart and free will to know and elaborate the right and wrong, we are the highest form of His creations who can manipulate all the things He made according to His will and purpose but if we did not obey the rules then we do not follow Him.
I think Acceptance, Humility, Character is way to Good Relationship with Christ…accepting that as human we made mistake and work out to correct the mistakes of our own, be humble in everything we do, keep the faith and keep a good character…
Thank you Lord for the Word.
