Sin

  1. 1. SIN<br />Realization ,deliverance and salvation<br />God Company Sri Lanka<br />A commitment to spread Gods word worldwide..<br />godcompanysl@yahoo.com<br />
  2. 2. The original translation of SIN means "to miss the mark" of God's holy standard of righteousness.<br />
  3. 3. SIN separates us from God<br />The Apostle Paul says in Romans 3:23:<br /> "All have Sinned and fall short of the glory of God." <br />We cannot reach the glory of God because of SIN.<br />… the more you SIN the more one distance ones self from God <br />
  4. 4. Tragically, SIN in any amount will distance us from God. <br />"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear,"  "But YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED YOU from your God; your SINS have HIDDEN HIS FACE FROM YOU, so that He will not hear." <br />Isaiah 59: 1-2.<br />
  5. 5. The Bible also says that WHENYOU SIN, you automatically earn the penalty of death<br />23 For the wages of SIN is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. <br />Rom. 6:23. <br />
  6. 6. THEREFORE WE SEEa. If we SIN we distance ourselves from Godb. Not only do we distance ourselves from God through SIN, it also hides His face from us c. The repayment for SIN is deathd. That God gave the possibility of eternal life through His only begotten son Jesus <br />Romans 3:23<br />Isaiah 59: 1-2<br />Rom. 6:23<br />
  7. 7. We live in a culture where the concept of SIN has become entangled in legalistic arguments over right and wrong…<br />A form of justification. <br />When most Christians consider "WHAT IS SIN?" we think of violations of the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Even then, we tend to think of murder and adultery as "major" SINS compared with lying, cursing, blasphemy or idolatry. This is because we have made a relative comparison and assumed that some Sins are more heinous because THE CIVIL LAW considers them such…<br />
  8. 8. Gods Law or the Civil Law<br />Paul, puts THE MEANING OF SIN in perspective when he says:"Therefore no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of SIN." Romans 3:20 <br />
  9. 9. God’s law reveals SIN. <br />God wants us to recognize our SINS. <br />Even IF we have not murdered or committed adultery, we find ourselves guilty of LYING, CHEATING, BLASPHEMY, NOT LOOKING AFTER OUR PARENTS,<br />or like in the case of many worshipping false idols like wealth or powerAHEAD OF GOD.<br />Most times WE ARE FOUND GUILTY of breeching most of the other commandments<br />WE LIVE IN DENIAL OF OUR SINFULNESS…AND MOST OFTEN FIND SOLACE <br />IN SOME GOOD DEEDS THAT WE MAY HAVE DONE, AS LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY…<br />
  10. 10. We ARE WARNED that we must resist the temptation to act as if we are righteous, especially by leaning on our good works. <br />"If we claim to be without SIN, we DECEIVE OURSELVES and the truth is not in us. If we confess our SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST and will forgive us our SINS and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not Sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in our lives“ <br />1 John 1:8-10<br />
  11. 11. John further states inI John 3:4, “Whosoever commits SIN transgresses [breaks] also the law: for SIN is the transgression [breaking] of the law.” When you SIN, you break the law.The Apostle Paul wrote in Rom. 7:7 , “What shall we say then? Is the law SIN? God forbid. Nay, I had not known SIN, but by the law”. But what law ARE THEY REFERRING TO ?<br />
  12. 12. Paul further explains in the same verse<br />“…for I had not known lust, except the law had said, You shall not covet” BY THE WAY…This is the Tenth Commandment, found in Exodus 20:17 and Deuteronomy 5:21. We consider lust as in reference to sex. But one can lust for many things. Money…Power…Luxuries…actually thousands of things. So we can come to the understanding that the law that Paul and John referred to was the Ten Commandments. <br />Both apostles taught that when you breech GODS COMMANDMENTS, you SIN.<br />
  13. 13. I John 5:17, “All unrighteousness is SIN.” <br />Psalm 119:172 172 May my tongue sing of your word, for all your commands are righteous. <br />Since LIVING BY God’s commandments is righteousness then unrighteousness-(SIN)-is the breach of the COMMANDMENTS. <br />We can now further establish that SIN is breakingGOD’S COMMANDMENTS.<br />
  14. 14. SIN begins in the mind. What you think eventually becomes what you do . <br />Jesus said;“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart [mind]; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders [Sixth Commandment], adulteries [Seventh Commandment], fornications, thefts [Eighth Commandment], false witness [Ninth Commandment], blasphemies [Third Commandment]: These are the things which defile a man”.Matthew. 15:18-20<br />
  15. 15. Sin comes from within us. That is what impurifys us because our thoughts covert in to actions that are mostly pleasing to us… …but most of these actions NECESSARILY ARE NOT PLEASING TO GOD. When such actions breech His COMMANDS…WE SIN<br />
  16. 16. Believing that Jesus paid for all our Sins is at the foundation of Christianity. It is based on the FAITH that GOD SENT JESUS CHRIST AS HIS SON TO EARTH. Voluntarily He sacrificed Himself to be humiliated, tortured, crucified on a cross and rose to life again to pay the debt for OUR SIN. So that by believing in Him and through REPENTANCE for our SINS we have a brand new lease of life. A possibility of leaving all the old baggage and start a new journey seeking the Kingdom of God. This was one purpose of His coming. The other propose was to bring us THE MESSAGE OF SALVATION. His teachings giving us the directions to reach His Kingdom. <br />We have all sinned against God and yet He provided the only way for atonement. Jesus Christ.<br />
  17. 17. Even people who have never opened a Bible are familiar with <br />“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”<br />John 3:16:<br />
  18. 18. Jesus came for sake of our Salvation… to release us from the clutches of Sin and Evil. <br />How many of us do take this very seriously and REPENT FOR OUR SINS?<br />MARK 2: 17On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I HAVE NOT COME TO CALL THE RIGHTEOUS, BUT SINNERS."<br />
  19. 19. Because of Gods love He provided us a way for Salvation through Jesus Christ. We see in Luke 15 the extent of His delight when a Sinner is saved.<br /> Jesus said … <br />LUKE 15:7I tell you that in the same way there will be more REJOICING IN HEAVEN over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.<br />
  20. 20. God gave the possibility of Salvation from our Sins through His only begotten son Jesus<br />. <br />John 3:16:<br />“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”<br />23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.<br />Romans 6:23<br />
  21. 21. God knows that we Sin…He in fact knows “ALL” OUR SINS<br />When the adulterous woman was to be stoned to death Jesus said<br />John 8:7 <br />“He who is without Sin, let him cast the first stone.”<br />Everyone walked away. Jesus knew very well that they HAD TO WALK AWAY…because they were ALL GUILTY OF SIN<br />
  22. 22. Without continuing to live in denial one has to accept to being a Sinner AS THE FIRST STEP…<br />Romans 3:10-12...There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.<br />
  23. 23. Once we arrive at this acceptance as Sinners then we need to find the solution for our Sins<br />The only solution is to find SALVATION through REPENTANCE for the Sins committed during all the years you have lived…<br />God gave us this possibility by sending His only begotten son who left all the riches of heaven to come down to earth for the sake of our SALVATION.<br />
  24. 24. Matthew 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, "REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR.“Mark 1:15"The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOOD NEWS!" <br />Good news of our SALVATION brought to us by Jesus.<br />Luke 5:32<br />I have not come to call the righteous, but SINNERS TO REPENTANCE.“<br />
  25. 25. Repentance is a change of THOUGHT AND ACTION to correct a wrong and gain forgiveness from a person who is wronged. In Christian context it refers to cease SIN against God, and resolving to live according to His teachings. It typically includes 1. An admission of Guilt 2. A promise or resolve not to repeat the offense; 3. An attempt live a life abiding Gods word in a manner that is pleasing to Him.<br />God gave us this possibility through Jesus. If we believe in this(otherwise we cannot call our selves Christians)…<br />we have hope for OUR SALVATION.<br />
  26. 26. Therefore the next step we need to accept Jesus as the savior. <br />By accepting Jesus as our savior, we then would be more open to His directives to us that is found in the four Gospels.<br />Through reading and understanding His word we will come to a greater awareness of Sin and how we need to live and be a light unto others.<br />
  27. 27. We see an excellent reference given by Paul in <br />Romans 8:5<br />5Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.<br />By reading, understanding and living by His word we can cease to live in accordance to our Sinful nature and make a new beginning to live in accordance to the Spirit<br />
  28. 28. YOU NEED TO GET HERE<br />The path to salvation<br />Living a righteous life full of Love, Joy, Peace, and Happiness<br />Diligently seeking an intimate relationship and bond with Jesus <br />Strengthening your spirituality by reading and abiding by Jesus` teachings<br />Being dead to the old you and beginning of a new you!<br />SALVATION FROM YOUR SINS<br />The path to salvation<br />Acceptance of Jesus as your Savior<br />Repentance for your Sinfulness<br />Becoming aware and admitting your Sinfulness<br />Living a life of Sinfulness and Denial<br />YOU ARE CURRENTLY HERE<br />
  29. 29. We also come across what Jesus terms as an unforgivable Sin that we should be mindful at all times<br />Mark 3:29 <br /> "But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is also referenced in Matthew 12:31-32 and Luke 12:10.<br />
