Although we sin, forgiveness is obtainable

What would the world be without sin? It would be a perfect place. No wars; no anger; no hostility. We can dream can’t we? The truth is no matter how much we desire to dream for a world without sin; sin is in the world. It started with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and it hasn’t stopped yet!

Romans tells us that we all have sinned; therefore, we are all sinners. I actually met a lady once in one of my previous churches who said she wasn’t a sinner. After a lengthy discussion she admitted she was a sinner.

I met a man once who said he wasn’t a bad person and that he believed he would go to heaven one day because he was basically a “good guy.”

So I asked him, if he had ever said anything that wasn’t the truth; and he said “yes.” I asked him what we call people who do that? He responded by saying, “We call them liars.”

I then asked him if he ever took anything that wasn’t his? He responded by saying, “yes.”

I asked him what we call people who do that and he said, “We call them thieves.”

I then asked him if he ever looked at a woman with lust in his heart toward her and he said, “I sure have.”

I then told him that Jesus said that when we look at others with lust in our eyes we have committed spiritual adultery. This man said, “Well, I doubt there is a man alive who hasn’t lusted after another woman!” I told him he is probably correct.

This man then asked me why I asked him these questions. I responded by saying, “Well, according to your own admission, you are a LYING, ADULTERESS THIEF.”

I then told him that those are only 3 of God’s Commandments that he has broken and I asked him if he wanted me to continue on and see if he has broken any of the other 7?

He said, “No, that’s O.K.”

The point is this: we ALL have sinned against God. God knows it. You know it. Everyone knows it. So why is it so hard for us humans to deal with our sin?

Because of PRIDE! Man wants to think that man is basically good. Humanism teaches that mankind is getting better; but the truth is that man is not getting better; we are getting worse. But even if man is pretty good; what about the Commandments of God that we have broken?

What do we do about that? Well, God’s Word tells us that if we break one part of the Law of God; we are guilty of breaking God’s Laws. We are guilty because WE have broken God’s Laws. So because of what we have done; this guilt is placed upon US.

Why? Because WE have broken God’s Laws. So is there help for us as sinful humans? Yes there is. There is a remedy for our Sin.

God’s love for us is so great that He sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ into the world to redeem the human race. He came and died on the Cross and rose from the dead to pay for ALL of humanities sin debt. He came because we are sinful(Rom. 5:8). He came because we are in need of a Savior. We can’t save ourselves!

Remember, we are all: LYING, ADULTERESS THIEVES. We have broken God’s Commandments and are guilty.

God provided a perfect sacrifice in Jesus Christ. His death, burial and resurrection was to prove He was God in the flesh and that he gave himself for us. If we would come to Him and repent of our sins and take Jesus as our Lord and Savior of our life; then he gives us salvation. Jesus told his disciples that they needed to have the faith of a child to understand this.

If you were to die today and stand before God and He should ask you why you think you should be allowed to enter into his perfect place called heaven; what would you say?

Remember now, you have already admitted to being a “LYING, ADULTERESS THIEF.” Do you think that God already knows that as well as you?

Come to Jesus today. Read the book of Romans, especially Romans 3,6 & 10. There you will find how

Scripture tells us how to trust Jesus as your Savior. Call me and I will sit down with you and share the Bible with you so you can know for sure that heaven is your home right now. God can and will forgive you; even if you are a LYING, ADULTERESS THIEF.

Jesus came because we are sinful and because we need a Savior.
