The Message of Hope
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
- John 1:29
The time has come for the people of God to wake up and recognize what is going on in the church. The enemy keeps gnawing away, deceiving us into accepting one lie after another, luring us into believing a compromised gospel, until the diluted body we call the church is pleasing to everyone except God.
It is time once again for the church to show the people their transgressions and point out their sins. Sin is the one thing we all have in common, but nobody likes to talk about it. Sin stops us from receiving all God has for us.
The message of sin is a message of hope, for Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world. We need not shrink from calling sin what it is, even at the risk of being rejected and ridiculed. Some will always turn away when confronted with their sin, but many more will be saved.
Jesus, convict me of my sin by Your Spirit. Give me the boldness and courage to confront sin in my life and my world.
- John 1:29
- Romans 5:4
- Deuteronomy 31:6
