Biblical Sin Bible Lesson
Original Sin in the Bible Journey

Glad to have you back again, here at Daily Bread. The last time we shared, Paul was explaining how by one man, Adam, one sin brought death to the world, and by one man, Jesus Christ, one act of righteousness, sacrificing Himself for our sins, brought life to the world.

Now Paul talks about sin in general. But Paul, in his Apostolic mind, is one step ahead of the things that the enemy would have you wonder about sin.

Acts 6:1

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that Grace may abound?

Paul knows that the adversary is gonna try and reason with you and craftily put questions in your mind, like, Well, if Grace only comes about because of sin, then without sin, there must be no Grace. So, if sin increases, wouldn't Grace be more plentiful? Here's Paul's answer:

Certainly not. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer in it? Don't you know, that all of us who are baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death? Therefore we're buried with Him by baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, in the same way, we also should walk in newness of life. Remember sin is death. So to ask if we should continue in sin, is like asking if we want to remain dead. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing that our old self is crucified with Him, so that the body of sin might be destroyed, that from now on, we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Now if we are dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ being raised from the dead, is dead no more, death has no more dominion over Him. For in that He died, He died unto sin once, but in that He lives, He lives unto God. Likewise consider yourselves also to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Once you accept Christ in your heart, you become much more aware of your sins. These sins are the tribulations that we as Christians, need to beware of, and in the last chapter, remember Paul said that we should rejoice in tribulations. Why would he say that? That sounds ridiculous, you may be thinking. And, doesn't it sound contradictory to beware of something and rejoice in it at the same time?

Well, God said that He would bring us through fire. And what do you think tribulations are? When you look at it from that viewpoint, it's much easier to understand, isn't it? Tribulations are not gonna go away. In fact, they're gonna increase the stronger your relationship becomes with God. Why? Shouldn't they become less?

No, because satan is gonna work even harder to yank you back to his side. What Paul is saying, isn't that when you become one with Christ, your life will be sinless or free of temptation. Remember that Jesus Himself was tempted by the devil for forty days in the wilderness, and countless other times through evil spirits that He cast out of people, etc. And, like Jesus, we need to do the righteous thing when temptation comes a callin' and just say no.

It can be a frustrating thing sometimes, because in our human condition, we sin. We don't like it, but we do it. That's confusing, but every one of you know what I mean, and Paul will explain this strange thing in Chapter 7, but for now, what we need to know is that our job is to fight when temptation rears it's ugly head. Be alert and be strong.

Paul writes:

So, don't let sin reign (rule) in your mortal body, that you should obey sin in the desires of your flesh. And don't surrender your bodies as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but surrender yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and surrender your bodies as weapons of righteousness for God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, because you are not under the law, but under Grace.

This brings to mind what David wrote of sin ...

Psalms 19:12-14

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

What are secret faults? Secret sins. Things that nobody knows about but you ... But God of course. It may be something you've done, or do, or think. Maybe it's something that you don't want to stop doing, or thinking, so you deny to yourself that it's really a sin, because you don't want it to be, but you know that if it was brought to the light, you'd find that it really is.

Maybe you think that if it doesn't hurt anyone else, it can't be sin. Do you have a kind of uneasy feeling about this? That might mean that you need to have a talk with yourself about secret faults. Don't be too hard on yourself though.

Even king David had them. Repent, ask for the Grace of God, get up if you've fallen down, and fight harder. One more thing ... Maybe secret sins are even secret from us ... Sounds like a good idea to pray about this like David did, huh?

Now let's get back to Paul's message. You can tell that Paul knows that the enemy isn't gonna stop with just one question.

What then? shall we sin, because we're not under the law, but under Grace? Certainly not. Don't you know, that who you submit yourselves to, you become their servant? Whether it's of sin to serve death, or of obedience to serve righteousness you belong to whom you obey?

But thank God, that you were once the servants of sin, but now you have obeyed from the heart, that form of teaching which was given to you. Then, being made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.

I speak in human terms because of the infirmity (weakness) of your flesh: because as you had yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity to serve iniquity; likewise, now, submit your bodies as servants to righteousness to serve holiness. For when you were the servants of sin, you had nothing to do with righteousness. What fruit (goodness) did you have from those things which you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin (having nothing to do with it), and having become servants to God, you have your fruit to serve holiness, and the end (the final reward is) everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Biblical Sin Bible Fear
Original Sin in the Bible Danger

No matter how you look at it, sin is a bad way to go. There is no good thing about it. It's end is death. Grace, God's free gift to us is the path to take. It will free you from death and bring you everlasting life. For those who think that Christianity paints a deceiving picture about the freedom that you gain from Grace instead of law, you must understand that freedom demands responsibility, however, that responsibility is love, and when it is true in your heart, it is effortless.

Freedom is not going around doing whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. That sounds more like an invitation to evil. Freedom is a clear conscience and that pure feeling of confidence that eternal life awaits you.
