The problem is sin. We are not sinners because we sin; rather we sin because we are sinners. Remember, the human heart is most deceitful of all things and desperately wicked. Keep in mind Adam’s sin brought condemnation for everyone. What do you say? That is not fair. Well, each one of us would have failed also. Not a day goes by that we each face the same thing as Adam.
We can’t make it right by following man’s laws. The law is simply to show us how sinful we are. We all missed the mark. No one is righteous, not even one. But we are to be perfect, even as our Father in heaven is perfect. If we protest this point, we are only fooling ourselves and not living the truth.
So keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts. Stay true to God by walking in His Word. Remember, Jesus did not die for us while we were His friends, but while we were His enemies. Whenever, you are tempted to doubt God’s love for you. Take a long look at the cross on which Jesus died; then realize that it wasn’t nails that held Jesus to the cross but love.
