“I am only human”
We always use this line to justify our choices that rub counters to the Lords’s ways. We are deceived by temptations but that’s obviously because we did not ask God to give us strength to ward off temptation and remain faithful to him. We are sinners but it doesn’t mean that we already have the licence to keep on committing them. He sacrificed his own son for us because He loves us. Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins but what are we doing? Jesus said, “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). He came to give his life, to die, and his death would result in salvation for others. This was the reason he came to earth. His blood was poured out for others (Matthew 26:28).
His death is for our salvation. Our Savior is a Savior who died. He takes away the sin of the world. And yes, we can’t deny that there are really sins which we might be enjoying doing it over and over again but at the end of the day whatever justification we may have, sin is sin. Thus we must muster the courage to say no to it.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).
