For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
Many people today are taking sin lightly, they don’t understand not only does sin equal death. But sin also has consequences on you and your family. Yes Jesus died for our sins and he’s willing to forgive them, but you also must strive to live a holy life just like Christ.
Why does God hate sin so much? Because sin equals death. Every sin there is leads to your destruction. Sin comes from Satan and is an act of rebellion against God and his Kingdom.
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Genesis 3:19
Adam and Eve literally had the perfect life, they were immortal, living in paradise, and everything was provided for them. But they couldn’t resist the temptations of Satan. Even though God warned them it would equal death, they still went ahead with it.
We all have free will, so they had a right to choose whatever they wanted. But there are consequences for there sin and it equaled death. They once had mortality now they will return to dust just as God commanded.
Since we all are descendants of Adam and Eve, we all have inherited this curse of death. You see Adam and Eve’s sin not only effected there life but impacted humanity. This is why we all need Jesus to save us, he is the only way.
Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. Genesis 21:10
Another example is Abraham, he got tired of waiting for God to deliver him his promised son, so he had a child with his servant. This sin not only brought great distress among there family, but he also disobeyed God.
God still delivered his promise and eventually Sarah and Abraham had the promised son of Isaac. But this only caused greater distress among the household and eventually Ishmael and his mother had to leave.
Many believe the prophet Muhammad is a descendant of Ishmael which obviously originated the Islam religion. If this is true, Abraham’s sin of having adultery consequently has impacted the entire world especially his nation of Israel and all Jews and Christians.
There is a reason God forbids sin, and there is a reason why God takes it so seriously. All your sins have consequences that will impact not only you but your family. Jesus is the only one who has ever walked the Earth and never sinned, follow Jesus and break the curse of sin Amen
