Word for Today:Sin is the problem.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” ( Isaiah 59:1-2).
The only reason God allowed His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross of Calvary is because of SIN. If we can remove sin from our lives, there can be no barriers to our victory. The only reason man died at the beginning of creation is because of sin.
Sin has enormous capacity to keep one in bondage. Sin has the capacity to keep someone at the same level for years. One may asked: Why does God hate sin with so much passion? It’s because He is a pure and holy God. His eyes are too pure to behold sin ( Habakkuk 1:13)
What is sin? Some people talk of ‘small’ and ‘big’ sin. Every act of unrighteousness is a sin. Sin is wrong doing. According to St James, anyone who knows the good thing he ought to do but didn’t do it, to him it is a sin ( James 4:17).
All you need to do is sincerely confess your sin before the Lord. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. It’s our sin that separate us from God. If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us(1John 1:8-9).
The good news is that our sins are forgiven, if we are willing. He says:
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Father, we receive the grace to embrace a life of holiness and sin will never have dominion over us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
