SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP

“SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP, EVERYTHING UP, OH NO. SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP, EVERYTHING UP.”

 

Those words speak so much truth. God created this beautiful planet and all the amazing things in it. Then, He created man and woman and placed them in a breath taking garden with all they would ever need and then, SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP!

In Genesis 3, when the serpent told the woman that she would not die if she ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge and that what would really happen is that her eyes would be opened, the Bible says that she was convinced. It doesn’t seem like it took very much convincing for her to eat the fruit. SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP!

As we continue reading in Genesis 3 we see where the woman gave the man some of the fruit and he ate. SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP!

Why is it that sin can look so good at times and it doesn’t take much to convince us that it is okay to jump right in and then we discover that SIN MESSED EVERYTHING UP!

BUT we have received mercy and grace from our Heavenly Father when He made it all right by sending His one and only Son to die for our sins because it was never in His plan for sin to mess everything up. We did that all on our own by not following the plans that God has for us. Yes, sin messed everything up, everything up. But, “GOD MAKES EVERYTHING RIGHT, EVERYTHING RIGHT, OH YEAH! GOD MAKES EVERYTHING RIGHT, EVERYTHING RIGHT!”
