I completely understand.
A subject as abstract as sin doesn’t come up much in conversation.
It is uncomfortable.
Not many people, Christians and not, know the fullness of sin; the weight it causes; the stain it leaves.
We don’t speak of it for fear of judgment or being excluded.
It’s actually quite shallow when you think about it, isn’t it? We keep quiet about our sin, and others, because we don’t want to step on their toes and, of course, neither do we want people stepping on ours. While we secretly struggle daily, alone, and the struggle grows and grows.
Or, we don’t want to be excluded from friends and groups. When did we start wanting to people please over pleasing God?
Sin, in its simplest form, separates us from our Father. It creates a rip in the foundation of our relationship with The Creator.
This thing called sin
is exciting and enticing
it can be pleasing and misleading.
It lies to us; it offers temporary remedies for permanent emptiness.
It haunts us with sweet memories of its joy; taunts us with feelings of satisfaction that never last.
Promising wholeness, leaving us broken.
To live and live sinless. An impossible feat.
But there is a solution – to our sickness and separation. A petition to live and sin less.
The One, the Christ, the Savior
Saw our emptiness and chose to complete us.
Grace in its purest form.
Salvation at its best.
The problem of sin weakens in comparison to the sweetness of redemption.
