2. We are all sinners Romans 3:23~ all have sinned and falls short of the glory of God. Sin is any lack of conformity to the character and will of God. No one is righteous not even one Romans 3:23 no one does good, not a single one Romans 3:12 We all have sin in our hearts. We Were born with sin. We were born under the power of sins control. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is noone who is innocent. We can chose to love ourselves and turn to our selfish pursuits.That is sin. In our sin we cannot know god and His love. The resultof sin is that we are lostseparation of god. ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A SINNER 3. SIN STUFF The presence of the sin nature has thoroughly corrupted manstotal being. His personality ---intellect, emotion, and will---is tunedaway from God and toward sin.What comes out of a man is what makes him unclean. For fromwithin, out of mens hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality,theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy,slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside andmake a man unclean. " (Mark 7:20-23) One sin involves the mind; the other involves both the mind and thebody; but they are both sin. You are lost in sin! Sin dominates you completely--- your past, yourpresent, and your future. Nothing good lives in you, that is, in your sinful nature. 4. Our price for sin Romans 6:23a~For the wages of sin is DEATH. Sin has an ending. It results to death. We all face physicaldeath, which is the result of death. But a worse death is aspiritual that alienates us from God, and will last for alleternity.Understand that you deserve death for sin! 5. Sin on the cross For When we were yet without strength, in duetime Christ died for ungodly. For scarcely forrighteous man will one die: yet peradventure fora good man some would even dare to die. ButGod commendeth his love towards us, in that wewere yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans5:6-8) when Jesus died on the cross He paid Sinspenalty. He paid the cosmic price for all sin, andwhen He took all the sins of the world on himselfon the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sinand death! The only condition is that we believein him and what He has done for us,understanding that we are now joined with Him,and that He is our life. He did all this because Heloved us and gave Himself for us! 6. The Gift Of Eternal Life Romans 6:23b~ But the gift Of God iseternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord We cant earn this gift.
