Sin: A Barrier Separating Us From God

brick_wall

SIN  is............................................

  GOING MY OWN WAY ignoring God [REBELLION vs GOD]
•  FAILING God's standards [MISSING THE MARK]
•  SELFISH rather than God-centred [SELF-CENTREDNESS]
•  WANTING TO SATISFY MY DESIRES [PLEASURE-SEEKING]
•  DOING WHAT GOD HATES [ DOING EVIL]

ISAIAH 59:1-2  God's arm is not too short to save you. His ears are not deaf to your cries. The problem is your sins have separated you from God  -  they're a blockage to any relationship with him.

Sin Is Part Of Our Human DNA

The Bible says we were born sinners. If you don't believe it, just watch a baby or young child! That's why King David wrote:

Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. For I was born a sinner  —   yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.  PSALM 51:1-5 

If we want to get right with God, we need to deal with the heart of the problem.............................
