Sin & Its Consequences

The consequences of sin are huge!  Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.

 

The cost of sin:

  • Jesus’ life 
  • messes up your relationship with Christ
  • messes up other relationships in your life

Throughout Scripture, there is a consistent theme that every sin has a consequence.

 

Examples of sin & its consequences

  • David & Bathesheba (2 Samuel 12) Son died & sword never departs his house
  • Hezekiah  Pride and arrogance, led him to show Babylon all of Judah’s riches.  The consequence was that Judah would be taken into captivity. 
  • Moses hit the rock, disobeying God.  He was not allowed to enter the promise land.
  • President Clinton  His legacy was tarnished, he had to answer private questions in public, and his family saw him on the news constantly.
  • Ted Haggard  He lost his livelihood, had to move, hurt his family, and lost friends.

 

Your sin will affect not only yourself, but also your friends and family.  Sin may lead to addiction.  The first drink, the first smoke, the first time that you do drugs, may lead to an addiction that costs you everything that you hold dear.

Sin is just not worth it!  

 

Romans 6:1-4 talks about not continuing in sin.  Even though Jesus took care of our eternal price for sin on the cross, He did not take away the consequences of sin that we have to pay here on earth.  

 

Romans 6:20 tells us that we should no longer be slaves to sin, but now we should be sold out for God.

 

Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.  Sin is just not worth the price that you will have to pay.  Every sin has a consequence.
