Sermon 7 things about SIN (Romans 6:17-23).


Sermon about The power of sin (Romans 6:17-23).

The concept of original sin has fascinated Christian thinkers and writers from the early medieval period to the present day. The idea that humans inherit a sense of depravity from Adam and Eve's original sin became deeply embedded in Christianity.

 According to this theory, humans possess a tainted nature that they inherited from Adam and Eve. This is a nature inclined to be destructive- both to themselves and to God's creation. Essentially, humans are sinners people.

According to the bible, after eating from the Tree of Knowledge, humans began corrupting the creation that they had been entrusted with by God. According to many Christian thinkers, this theological concept explains everything about human nature and how it has been influenced by sinners humanity's.

1. The love of sin (Hebrews 11:25; 1 John 2:15-16).

The first aspect we must address is the love of sin. In Hebrews 11:25, we learn about the temporary pleasures of sin that Moses chose to reject, instead identifying with God's people. Similarly, in 1 John 2:15-16, we are warned against loving the world and its sinful desires. Sin often presents itself as enticing and pleasurable, drawing us away from God's purposes for our lives. It is crucial to recognize the deceitfulness of sin and to align our affections with God's will, finding our delight in Him alone.

(Heb 11:25) choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God, than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin;

(1Jn 2:15-16) Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

2.The practice of sin (Romans 1:28-32).

The second aspect we must consider is the practice of sin. In Romans 1:28-32, Paul describes the downward spiral of humanity as they embrace sinful practices. Sin not only captivates our hearts but also manifests in our actions and behaviors. When we continually engage in sinful practices, we distance ourselves from God's righteousness and the abundant life He intends for us. It is important to examine our lives and repent of any sinful patterns or behaviors, allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us into the image of Christ.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, Insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

3 The state of sin (Romans 3:10,23; Colossians 3:6-7).

The third aspect we must confront is the state of sin. Romans 3:10 and 23 declare that all have sinned and fall short of God's glory. In Colossians 3:6-7, Paul urges believers to put to death the sinful nature and rid themselves of its practices. Sin affects every aspect of our being, corrupting our thoughts, desires, and actions. We are born into a fallen state, separated from God's holiness. Recognizing our state of sin compels us to turn to Jesus Christ, who alone can cleanse us and restore our relationship with the Father.

(Rom 3:23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

(Col 3:6-7) For it is on account of these things that the wrath of God will come, [7] and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them.

4. The guilt of sin (Acts 2:37).

The fourth aspect we must acknowledge is the guilt of sin. In Acts 2:37, when Peter preached the message of salvation, the people were "cut to the heart" and recognized their guilt in crucifying Jesus. Sin carries a weight of guilt that burdens our souls and separates us from God's presence. However, the guilt of sin can be relieved through genuine repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price for our sins on the cross.

Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?”

5. The power of sin (Romans 6:17; 6:23).

The fifth aspect we must confront is the power of sin. In Romans 6:17, Paul speaks of being enslaved to sin before finding freedom in Christ. Sin has a powerful hold on humanity, leading us to make choices that separate us from God's righteousness. The consequences of sin, as mentioned in Romans 6:23, are death and eternal separation from God. Only through the power of Christ can we break free from the chains of sin and experience true liberation.

(Rom 6:17) But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed,

(Rom 6:23) For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

6. The punishment of sin (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9).

The sixth and final aspect we must consider is the punishment of sin. In 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, Paul describes the fate of those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel—they will face eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord. Sin carries severe consequences, both in this life and in eternity. Yet, God, in His mercy and grace, offers us salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. By accepting His sacrifice on the cross and surrendering our lives to Him, we are saved from the punishment that sin deserves.

Dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

7. The riches of pardon.

There is an effective alternative to sin human wrongdoing- namely, divine intervention through Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

Pardon means justification. It is “just-as-if-I’d never sinned” (Isa. 55:7).

Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

God’s pardon means that there is no sin that I have to live with or live down with God!

God’s pardon means that there is no sin that I have to live with or live down with God!

In Christ God has a new dwelling place (Eph. 2:19-22)

The ultimate place of dwelling (permanent) and fellowship with God (Rev. 21:3)

Sin and death no more (Rev. 21:4-8)

Nevertheless, we must, in the here and now, overcome sin through Jesus Christ in order to have fellowship with God (Rev. 21:7)
