Everyone on this earth sins their heads off at one point or another in their life. I remember that my hardest years were in middle school before I met Jesus.
But I still sin, and for some stupid reason, even though I know sinning is wrong, I still do it. I still lie. I still seek out sexual pleasure. I still hurt people. I still look away from God. And I still idolize things I should have very little to do with.
Every day I sin. Not always on purpose. But it’s not like I stop myself. I am a sinner. I absolutely despise myself for it. But I do it anyways. Sin has integrated itself in me and my friends. I still try to follow Jesus, as I will always do. But I continuously look of my path to something else that is not good for me.
We all sin. And we will all be judged for our sins. So why do we do them? Why do we enjoy hurting people, and disobeying god? What happened to us? And why is it so hard for anyone to stop sinning? Why is it that we do these horrible nasty things all the time when we know that the consequence for it is not entering Heaven?
Do you have an answer to these questions? How can we encourage those who are weighed down by the sin in their lives?
