Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
What is sin? That is both a strange and unwelcome question in a culture that evaluates truth in terms of what feels good or right to the individual. To insist, in such an environment that there is something called an absolute moral standard can get you sidelined, or expelled or even fired (as it has a growing list of honest people over the last year).
But resistance to truth or opposition to truth does nothing to change the truth. Paul reminds us that we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. And the truth is that all of us are part of a broken race, the race of Adam. The Bible says, For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. I may not like that statement, but my conscience tells me it is true – I am indeed the sinner the Bible is talking about.
But if I am that sinner, then I am also the one for whom God provided a remedy in His Son Jesus Christ. Scripture says of Him, But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sin, forever, sat down on the right hand of God. That “one sacrifice for sin forever was all that was forever needed, and I can claim it as the payment for my sin by a simple act of believing faith. You can too – why not do it now?
