Under Gods Command

Romans 3:22-24 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus

Some sins seem bigger than others because their obvious consequences are much more serious.  Murder, for example, seems to us to be worse than hatred, and adultery seems worse then lust.  But this does not mean that because we do lesser sins we deserve eternal life.  All sin makes us sinners, and all sin cuts us off from our holy God.  All sin, therefore leads to death (because it disqualifies us from living with God), regardless of how great or small it seems.

Lets Bring It Home: Justified means to be declared not guilty.  When a judge in a court of law declares the defendant not guilty, all the charges are removed from his record.  Legally, it is as if the person had never been accused.  When God forgives our sins, our records are wiped clean.  From his perspective, it is as though we had never sinned.

Lets Bring It Home: Don’t minimize “little” sins or overate “big” sins.  They all separate us from God, but they all can be forgiven. Seek Gods forgiveness now before its to late.
