Sin separates us from God (Isaiah 59:2). All of us are sinners (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:7-10). The ultimate consequence of sin is the wrath of God for eternity (Matthew 25:41; Mark 16:16; John 3:18-19; John 3:36; Revelation 20:14-15).
There are, however, real consequences in this life. Sin spreads its way through our lives and, like a really bad cold, spreads to those around us.
I recommend a story which displays the consequences of sin and shows how quickly sin destroy even the most innocent among us. Please, take the time to read this tragic story.
Not all sin has the same consequences. But remember, even the most horrendous sin begins small.
The story is at CNN and is titled, “I’m Sorry, Goodbye.”
