Advent … Day 5 of 29

Week 1
The People’s Need

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world.
Adam’s sin brought death,
so death spread to everyone,
for everyone sinned.
Romans 5:12
Jesus answered them,
“Truly, truly, I say to you,
everyone who commits sin
is a slave to sin.”
John 8:34
So whoever knows
the right thing to do
and fails to do it,
for him it is sin.
James 4:17

A few bad chapters does not mean your story is over …

Since the Garden of Eden, humans have been born into sin. Our most common human legacy is sin. Because of sin, we fall short, miss the mark. Our bodies experience the effects of sin in our fragility, our inescapable end of life, through death. We fail each other, resulting in broken relationships, broken commitments and traumas that get passed from generation to generation.

Sin is real …

and it is really why we are counting down the days, in hopeful anticipation of the coming (and the coming again) of Jesus.

For God made Christ, who never sinned,
to be the offering for our sin,
so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:21

We are not just counting down to Christmas, we are counting the days to the anniversary of the end of our life in sin. This is personal, this is life saving … we just need to be willing to open that final door to Him, the one to our heart.

“Jesus told the story of the Prodigal son to make a simple point:
never mind what you’ve done, just come home.”
