Some are born into wealth and others into poverty. Some are born geniuses and others with special needs. Some are born with amazing talent and others are born average. However, no matter what our genetics or ancestry, we are all born sinners (Romans 3:23)! Thankfully, we all have the same, single hope for salvation — Jesus Christ. His sacrifice allows us all, through faith, no matter our individual backgrounds, to be certain we will spend eternity in heaven with our wonderful Creator. Unlike us, Jesus was perfect, the Bible tells us “He knew no sin” (1 Corinthians 5:21), and as a result, His death was payment for the sins of the world (Romans 6:23; John 1:29; 1 John 2:2).
The sign you see in the picture, “SIN AT YOUR OWN RISK”, should be a warning for us all. The “risk” of allowing sin to remain in our lives results in one of two things…
For nonbelievers, quite simply, your sin leads to spiritual death—eternal separation from God, and eternity in hell (Luke 5:32). This is because you lack a personal relationship with Christ (John 14:6).
For believers, living in disobedience to God (sin), whether knowingly or unknowingly, separates us from having fellowship with God (Romans 5:8). Remember we are not perfect, but we shouldn’t be perfect sinners! How do you know how to live righteously? Read His Word and pray for wisdom to apply it!
Are you willing to risk it???
“We can complain about the wickedness we see on the news, but if we do not turn away from sin ourselves, God will not heal our land.” — John Goetsch
