He Settled The Sin-Problem by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

He Settled The Sin-Problem by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift
of God is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

Some people only think of God’s wrath. They
believe He’s fuming at the world from
heaven, looking forward to the day He’ll
finally execute judgement on man and this sinful world;
no! God isn’t concerned about sin as many think. He
was concerned about sin, and His concern made Him
send Jesus.

Today, the emphasis is no longer on the wages
of sin, which is death, but on the gift of God, which
is eternal life through Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23). God
wants the world to receive the salvation which He
already made available in Christ Jesus. The Bible says
He’s unwilling that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

When Jesus died on the Cross, the problem of
sin was dealt with forever. The death, burial, and
resurrection of Jesus Christ brought an end to sin and
brought us into the life of righteousness: “For he hath
made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we
might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2
Corinthians 5:21).

God isn’t mad at you; He settled the sin-problem
in, and through Jesus Christ. Now you can appreciate
why He said, “…sin shall not have dominion over
you…” (Romans 6:14). What you need do is trust His
righteousness; trust what Jesus came to do! You’re the
fruit—the result of Christ’s redemptive work. Accept and
walk in His righteousness, and live continually in His love, glory, and grace.

2 Corinthians 5:19 says, “To wit, that God was in
Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing
their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto
us the word of reconciliation.” Think about it: God isn’t
even mad at the sinner, let alone you that are His
offspring! Therefore, rejoice and be glad; your heavenly
Father loves you, and never holds you accountable for
your sins. The Bible says, “…If, when we were enemies,
we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his
life” (Romans 5:10). How gracious and kind He is!

CONFESSION
My heavenly Father loves me; and I serve Him with
gladness, pleasing Him in all things! I’m His crown
and beauty; His righteousness spreads through me.
His grace and love reaches out to the nations thro
ugh
me; I’m His light in a dark world! Through me, the
Kingdom of God is established in the earth and in the
hearts of men. Praise God forevermore!
