Sin isn’t a popular word. Most people think of sin as doing something really bad, like murder, assault, or robbery. But the word “sin” has the idea of missing the mark, not hitting the target.
The idea is that God has set a glorious standard and when we fail to live by it, we sin. We say, do, and think things that are contrary to God's standard, and the problem is that no matter how much we try and achieve change by ourselves, we just can't succeed.
The Bible teaches that our nature is imprisoned to sin. We miss the mark because we choose creation over the Creator. We look to succeed by our own strength, yet we never shake our own selfish sin. No matter what our education, religious heritage, ethnicity, or financial status, we cannot overcome the power of sin by ourselves. This is a problem.

One day God will judge all people for the injustices committed. But for now, God is patience with us and so the injustice on earth continues. Even though His judgment is delayed, it’s more certain than tomorrow’s sunrise.
When you unfold the truths in God’s Word it’s remarkable what surprising and sometimes stinging things come out. Knives often hurt.
