What sin does

Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God, and David their king, and they shall come in fear to the LORD and to his goodness in the latter days (Hosea 3:5)

We are the redeemed and our Redeemer lives. For all have sinned and had done wicked things, we deserve to die. However, because of God’s love for us, He gave his only Son to set us free from sin and its consequence which is death. God’s gift is eternal life through Christ Jesus.

God is so good for He has given us not just one, two or three chances. He is willing to forgive us from all our wrongdoings. All we need to do is repent, turn away from evil and start walking in Spirit. We need not crucify ourselves to be forgiven. Christ had already done that many years ago.

Sometimes we feel so unworthy of God’s love. Because we have done a lot of wicked things, we feel filthy and undeserving so we tend to be ashamed of what we have done. This makes a gap between our relationship with God. This is what sin does. It disrupts our communication with God. But be aware that God is faithful and just if we confess our sins.

Grab the chance to turn back to God while we still have plenty of time because when His second coming arrives, we may not be able to live eternal life with Him if we still choose to stay as our old selves. Return now and seek the Lord.
