Christian~ese 101: Sin


The

"S" Word

that started

This Jesus Thing,

This Christian Thing.

The word that was invented the moment

Eve bit the apple~

"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned." Romans 5:12

The S Word~

Sin.

The Word that separates us from God

The Word that makes us our own God

The Word that becomes a part of our DNA, just because we inherited it

The Word that we can't deny

because

"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Romans 4:23

But

we don't have to

Walk the Talk

of

The S Word

anymore~

"Here it is in a nutshell:

Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble,

He got us into life! One man said no to God and put many people in the wrong;

One Man said yes to God and put many in the right.

All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn’t, and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace.

When it’s sin versus grace, grace wins hands down.

All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it.

Grace, because God is putting everything together again through

the Messiah,

invites us into life —a life that goes on and on and on,

world without end. Romans 5:18-20

Therefore

let's

Walk the Talk

and Put On

Jesus

who erases

The S Word

from the

Christian~ese

vocabulary.
