Blaming Sin

Most of us want God to use our lives to make a difference. Yet when we look at the days of our lives, at least for me, I see all the areas where I fall short. While I’m growing, there is an alarming gap between who I want to be and who I actually am. Who I want to be and who I am are not very close together. I’m sure some of you can relate. We’ve been discussing this a lot at Cross Point, and when we seek to answer this question, it’s really found in Genesis 3, though perhaps without giving us all the information we would like to have. And the problem of ‘the gap” in a word is: SIN.

Sin stained our world.

Sin stained marriages.

Sin stained families.

Sin stained hearts.

Sin stained  dreams.

Part of what we have to do for our life, our life with God, and for the state of our souls, is to recognize sin is, in fact, the greatest enemy of the human race.
