Sin is the separation between God and His creation. When the world was first created, sin was non-existent. God created human beings in his own image; Then blessed them and said “Be fruitful and multiple. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.” [Genesis 1:28]. The Lord formed Adam out of dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into him. After God created Adam, he took one of Adam’s ribs and created Eve. Now Adam and Eve were living in the Garden of Eden, naked and unashamed. In this garden, they had everything they could want or need and lived worry free . . . until the serpent came along.
As the story continues, the serpent convinced Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the one tree God said was off limits. Once Adam and Eve took a bite out of the forbidden fruit, the world was changed forever. When Adam sinned, by eating the fruit, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ.
And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater God’s wonderful grace and gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this man, Jesus Christ.
Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.
As people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life though Jesus Christ our Lord [Romans 5:12-21].
This plan is dedicated to teaching Believers the seven deadly sins. By understanding the consequences of these actions, how they influence relationships and how they affect the Spirit, this 7-day plan will help you to overcome temptation, grow in faith and become a better you.
Each day will uncover one of the deadly sins with scripture and testimony. Although, sin rules this world, Believer you are not of this world! You are created by the most high and because of God’s grace no longer a slave to sin. “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. Thank God! once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey his teachings [Romans 6:16-17].
