The Necessity for Good News

 

Ezekiel 18:4

~ Proverbs 25:25; Proverbs 15:30

 

Recognize the Reality of Sin.

Sin breaks God’s Law.

~ I John 3:4     Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

 

~ Romans 2:14-15       or when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them,

 

Sin separates us from God.

~ Ezekiel 18:4             Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.

 

~ Romans 6:23            For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

~ Revelation 21:8         But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

 

 

Realize the Reach of Sin.

Sin results from Personal Choice.

~ James 1:14                But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.

 

~ Romans 3:23            for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

 

~ Romans 3:10             as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one;

 

~ James 2:10               For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

 

Sin incurs Personal Punishment.

~ Ezekiel 18:4             Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.

 

~ Romans 14:10           But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

 

~ Romans 14:12          So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.

 

~ II Corinthians 5:10   For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

 

 

Reach for the Remedy for Sin.

The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from sin.

~ Ephesians 1:7           In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace

 

~ I John 1:7     but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

~ I Peter 1:18-19         knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

 

The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from ALL sin.

~ I John 1:7     but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
