Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Sin is defined in the following verses known as the Ten Commandments of God or The Law. Sin is breaking one of God’s commandments and the fine or the sentence must be paid or this is no law and anarchy is the law. God is just and no evil will dwell in his presence. An example is, getting a speeding ticket, then what. Will you pay it or just act like you did not get it? If you ignore it there will be repercussions. Just one minor incident and now you are facing major injury to your life accomplishments. Sin is just like that! You will not be able to ignore it when the Day of Judgment comes. Well how serious will it be?
Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things so ever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
All men are accountable to the law of God and the people of the world are guilty! For God said so.
Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
By Adam, the first man, Sin entered into the world and Death by sin. So death passed upon all men because all have sinned.
Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
The mercy of God is reveal in Christ who died for the ungodly.
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Death is the result of sin. Man chose not to obey God in the Garden of Eden and they died spiritually immediately and later physically. Your sentence for Sin will follow you into eternity unless the payment is paid in full in this life. Then what can wash away my sins, nothing but the Blood of Jesus.
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Redemption: In theology, the purchase of God’s favor by the death and sufferings of Christ; the ransom or deliverance of sinners from the bondage of sin and the penalties of God’s violated law by the atonement of Christ.
How am I made right with God?
2 Corinthians 5:19 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.
2 Corinthians 5:21 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.
Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Ro 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
You must agree with God that your sin nailed Jesus to the cross. He took your punishment for sin to his cross voluntarily because His great love for all mankind. He died because our sin and then rose from the grave the third day according to the scriptures. Believe with all your heart that He died for your sins and that the Father raised Him from the dead, and confess him as your Lord and only Saviour before men.
