Our sin problem

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 May 2024

John 15:4
‘Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me.’

The Bible is clear that heaven is a HOLY place and NO SIN WILL EVER ENTER IT.
OUR PROBLEM is that every person that has ever lived has sinned and therefore has been disqualified from entry into heaven. We need to see ourselves as God sees us!
That’s the reality! – for the Bible says in Romans 3:23
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of  God.”  
The extent of the cloud of sin over your life depends on the way you have lived in the past, but remember that one sin makes you a sinner and one sin disqualifies you. That’s how it was in the case of Adam and Eve in the Garden.
It is imperative that we deal with our sin problem as soon as possible!

In the Bible we find a very clear answer to our sin problem. It tells us that God sent Jesus to take away our sin. John the Baptist one day pointed to Jesus and said,
“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”  
2 Corinthians 5:21 sums it up clearly:
For He [that is, God the Father] made Him [that is Jesus, the Son of God] who knew no sin, TO BE SIN FOR US, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
In other words, the moment we deal with our sin problem, God rates our sin as having been transferred on to Jesus and as a result God sees us as completely righteous before Himself! Picture it for yourself!
