The Sinfulness of Sin and the Greatness of Grace

Sin is more than merely breaking “a little rule.” It’s not just an offense against God’s law, it is an offense against His person. Sin is a serious transgression against everything that God IS.

– It is an act of denial that says the good offered by disobedience is better and greater than the good intended by a good God for obedience.

– It is an act of doubt that denies God’s promises are true.

– It is an act of rebellion that says I will do what I want rather than what God wants.

– It is an act of disrespect to the holiness of God.

– It is an act of insult to the loving nature of God.

– It is an act of idolatry that puts me on the throne which belongs to God alone denying His supreme authority.

– And, it is an act of blasphemy that questions the goodness of His essential nature and declares God to be a liar.

And yet, He forgives. God help us to understand the “exceeding sinfulness of sin” so that we may more deeply appreciate the exceeding greatness of His grace.
