Here is what is interesting about us as humans, we like to categorize in our heads what is a worse sin!!
Murder is worse than…..
At least I never sinned that bad…..
They have a real testimony, because they were really bad!!
Say this with me, “sin is sin is sin is sin”, go ahead and say it out loud again please, “sin is sin is sin is sin.”
What does sin do?
IT SEPARATES US FROM GOD! So different sins might have different consequences, but all sin does the same thing, it breaks down our relationship with Jesus.
Murder, homosexuality, adultery, drunkenness, stealing, the list goes on of sins that people esteem less or greater, but today let us think about one that most people do, and say, “well at least I am not as bad as them.”
Romans 1:28-32, And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, 29 Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, 30 Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. 31 [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. 32 Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.
BACKBITING, GOSSIP, SLANDER, the sins of your tongue are just as EVIL as sin we deem as HORRIFIC!
Instead of talking about others’ faults, shortcomings, and sins, talk about you needing to mow your lawn, or better yet, talk to that person about the LOVE OF JESUS THAT WILL FORGIVE, CHANGE AND EMPOWER THAT PERSON FOR GREATNESS!
STOP TALKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE!!!!
START TALKING TO OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS!!
