Sin

What is SIn ?

If you ask people they may have different views and opinions about sin.  To a religious person the things you do in your life that is bad. If you are super religious the list is endless.

But actually what is Sin ? 

The Greek word for “sin” is hamartia, an archery term for “missing the mark.  So what Mark did we missed.  In Order to find the right answer to that, we need to go back to the place where we missed the mark.  It is no where else, but in the garden of Eden.  Let us take a closer look at what has happened there. God created mankind on the sixth day, He created everything needed for them for six days before He created them. It was all sufficiency, there was no lack of anything. God was their provider. In that place satan deceived mankind to believing, God has not indeed provided everything. Satan created a sense of lack in them. And provided an answer for them. There for the first time man looked at some place other than God for their provision. 

That is where they missed the mark. 

What we need to do ?

We need to repent ( turn back) to God as our sole provider. 

People are looking everywhere to fulfill their desires and ends up in drugs and undesired places. 

What is religions solution ? 

Religion tells us to suppress our desires by praying and fasting and doing religious things.

What is Christ's solution ?

Christ solution is " John 7:37 "On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink."

John 4:14 " but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst....."

Mark is nothing and no one else but Jesus Christ. He will (Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart."

He is Our righteousness, He is our wisdom, He is everything. In Him all the fulness of God dwells. In Him we are perfect.

He is the MARK
