Sin Nature

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God's Word,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:33 am

1John1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

We are born with a sin nature,  this makes it natural for us it sin.  Just observe very young children.  Our daughters at 16 months apart.  The oldest was at 3 year old school 2 mornings a week.  One of those mornings I found her almost 2 year old sister standing in the hall with a yellow marker in her hand.  Behind her was yellow markings all over the wall.  She was seepking a few words but had never out 3 in one sentence until then.  Her finest sentence?  ” Debbie did it.”. Debbie wasn’t home.  It was the inate, inherited sinful nature that caused her first lie.  When we sin we rationalize it as a form of self-preservation.  We don’t have faith in God’s provision, blessings and protection for us and we separate ourselves from Him through sinning.
