The Power Of Sin

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.

Numbers 32:23

Sin has great power. Because of that power, humans face tragic outcomes due to their disobedience to God. Since Genesis 3, men and women have struggled with sin and its consequences.  And even today the battle rages on in the lives of human beings.

Sin dominates our lives every day. There is not a day that goes by where we are not tempted to sin. Satan, the prince of this world, tempts us and seeks to draw us away from God. Even Christians are not immune from the temptations of this world.

Sin devastates everyone in its wake. Sin not only has consequences for the sinner, transgression also affects those who are not directly involved. The great lie of Satan is this—“my sin is private and it will only impact me.” That statement is wrongheaded and fallacious on its face. Our transgressions affect those in our lives as well as us.

Sin ultimately destroys through death. In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve are told that death would be the great consequence of disobedience to God’s Word. Every generation since has dealt with the destruction and inevitability of death.

What is the solution to sin? Jesus! Trust in Christ as your Savior today. Jesus died for our sin (Romans 5:8), He rose again (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), and He offers us the gift of salvation as we trust the Lord by faith. (Romans 6:23) Christians are then empowered to live for Christ and not for sin.

Sin will be a struggle until we get to heaven. Christian, let us fight against disobedience every day. The struggle is real and lives are at stake.
