Sin Made More Sinful

OCOSBE Blog Comments Off on Sin Made More Sinful

By Evangelist John BJ Hall

Romans 7:13 (NASB77)
“…sin might become utterly sinful.”

The sense here is, that by the giving of the command, and its application to the mind, sin was completely developed; it was excited, inflamed, aggravated, and showed to be excessively malignant and deadly. It was not a dormant, slumbering principle; but it was awfully opposed to God and his law.

This all took place at the Garden of Eden and when Moses gave the Law to the people. Romans 5:20 says, “The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.”

The Laws purpose was to teach us what sin is. Giving us the knowledge of what is right and what is wrong. When a baby takes another babies toy he doesn’t know anything about stealing. He only knows possessing the toy is “good.” When his knowledge is increased that the toy is not his and that he has hurt someone by taking it…”sin has increased.”

As one grows older he begins to understand more and more about what is right and wrong. In that sin has become more sinful. The only way to change this is for someone to intervene and pay the debt on behalf of the sinner.

Enter Christ. He came as the only one who never sinned and died on the cross to pay the debt that He did not owe. Sin became even more sinful when our sins nailed Him to the cross. And GRACE abounded even more as He said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”

Today, you can allow Him to pay the debt that you could not pay. All you have to do is call on His name believing that He is the only begotten of the Father. Ask Him to forgive your sins and come into your life as Lord and Savior.

 

I Know My Son

How I have failed you Lord.
I know my son.
I have done that which is evil.
I know my son.
I have always failed.
I know my son.
How could you ever love me.
You know, My Son?

But He is so pure and I am so vile.
I know my son.
I do not deserve such grace.
I know my son.
I will only fail again.
I know my son.
How can You forgive me then?
You know, My Son?

You are so kind to me, my Lord!
I know my son.
You have done so very much!
I know my son.
I can never repay this price!
I know my son.
But, how and why, my Lord?
You know, … My Son?
