The great thing is that sin is like this error message… You just missed the mark, but you can be directed back onto the right path and find what you’re looking for.
We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
The word sin is merely an archery term for missing the mark or bulls eye. And if we are honest, we have all “missed the mark” at some point in our lives. We have all gotten a “404 error” message in life!
Sin Breaks Apart Relationship
These mistakes lead to separation and brokenness—gaps and holes in our relationships here on earth, but most importantly with God. But there is hope! There is a way to mend the broken place, the hole that sin left and restore the relationship with God and often times with others. That way is Jesus who became the perfect sacrifice for our sin. He is fully man and fully God, and He stepped out of heaven into the earth to die that we might live forever in relationship with Him. He did what we can’t do: He abolished the separation that sin caused between God and mankind. And He did it by living a sinless life and allowing Himself to die a sinner’s death — execution on a Roman cross. But though he died, He conquered death itself and rose from the grave on the third day after His death.
Why Would a An All-Powerful God Allow Himself to be Tortured and Killed?
He did this because the Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life” (Rom 6:23)! He paid the wage (death) for us. He was the sacrifice that was made for our sin! It is written this way because something must die to pray for sin because sin cannot be undone! But Jesus sacrificed His own life and became the final sacrifice! “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Cor. 5:21)
Just like this error message you can’t take away the error that is done. But, you could do another search and maybe find our website or possibly find another error message or even be deceived by a counterfeit site! But it would be best if we provided a direct link, right? God did that for us through Jesus so our search and striving would be over! He did this because He loves us too much to be separated from us! He knows that as hard as we try we could never achieve perfection and fix all the broken links in our relationship with Him. We could not search, work, or strive our way out of the consequences of our sin which is death and eternal separation from Him! So He sent His only begotten Son who never sinned to become sin so that we could have new beginning and relationship with Him through Jesus! Simply put, He paid the price and gave us a direct link even though we do not deserve to get off that easy! All we have to do is accept His forgiveness and stop searching and allow Him to empower us to do away with our sinful ways! At that moment you accept His proposal for eternal relationship it is like saying “ok I trust this is the only link to fix my broken relationship with God and others! Will you say: “YES Jesus, I accept that you died for me to be forgiven and I accept your forgiveness. I allow you to wipe my slate clean and give me a new life! Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I may be empowered to live this new life out!” If you said yes then you have a new start! The old can die and the new life will come (2nd Cor. 5:17). He accepts you and rejoices at your new relationship with Him! Now He want you get to know Him! Read the Bible, start talking to Him in prayer and tell someone how your life has just changed! Declare, I believe Jesus that my life is new, secure, and about to change for the better! Get in a good Holy Spirit filled Bible believing church and grow!
