The Weight Of Sin


The earth itself will stagger like a drunk, sway like a hut in a storm. The world is weighed down by its sins; it will collapse and never rise again.

~Isaiah 24:20, GNT


Beware of thinking to lightly of sin.

~C. H. Spurgeon

The earth, even the ground beneath our feet and the sky above our heads, is under the curse of sin. Earthquakes, famines, droughts, storms, disease, decay and death are evidence of the consequences of man’s rebellion. Sin creates a staggering burden that becomes to heavy to carry.

The outside temperature of a Jet Airliner flying at 36,000 feet is minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that moisture can become a fatal problem due to ice build up on the wings. To fly at these high altitudes, Jets require deicers on the wings that work similar to defrosters in vehicles. In February of 2009, Continental Express flight 3407 crashed into a home outside of Buffalo, due to ice buildup on the plane’s wings and tail section. This disaster was not instantaneous; it was a process that takes time but eventually the ice which form in layers and became a burden to heavy for the aircraft to bear.

Sin will destroy this world and the system that governs it. There is only one way to survive the coming judgment, repentance. Sin has formed layer upon layer of rebellion which will result in a fatal crash. Only the blood of Christ will, and can remove the sin. The only way to keep sin from getting the victory is to repent and turn to Christ. There is no hope for our bodies, the world or even the earth: sin will eventually destroy them all but you can be saved by trusting Christ.


Running behind this week and had to go back to May 12, 2016 and pull up an old blog. We got a good rain last night and the sun is bright this morning. We will not be having our normal Wednesday. Ken’s COLS is at noon and I have to go get a shot in my knee this morning. I hope we get back to normal soon.

GRACE POINT: I will be on the triune nature of man, created in God’s image tonight. We will do the chapter on Time next week LORD willing.

Edwin Jenkins wife Joann passed away unexpectedly night before last and the visitation is tomorrow at the Mount Zion Baptist Church {Madison County} 1:00-3:00 and service at 3:00. Edwin is the interim at Sardis Springs I believe and he has served us as interim at the MBA.

Have a great day and thanks for reading the blog.
