The S Word

We hear a lot today about relative morality. The goodness or badness of your behavior is only relative to what you think or feel it should be. There is no longer for a lot of people a universal morality—no general idea of good or evil. So therefore, could we conclude that people are all okay no matter how they act?

In our culture in the U.S., one of the S words, sin, has just about been taken out of existence, sadly, even in a lot of our churches. Some churches just say God loves you and wants to bless you which is true. But they forget He is a god of justice and is also our truest judge. This world belongs to Him.

1 John 8 says If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. Later in verse 10 is stated If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. 1 John 2:2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

God is not stupid. If there had not been a powerful need for Jesus to die on that cross, God would not have sent Him to earth to suffer through such a horrific death. We are simply put impure sinners unable to perfect and save ourselves. We are overwhelmingly blessed that someone as beautiful, perfectly pure and wonderful as our Creator wants to loves us as much as He does. May God bless your day. Praise God!!
