I begin with the very common cry… “There’s so much hurt, God, so much pain in hearts I hold dear…” And He says, softly like, Do you see? Do you see why I hate sin so much?
Folks, there are a lot of reasons God hates sin… But one of them is this: He hurts when we hurt, and sin is always at the back of hurt. Maybe not your sin, but someone’s.
Do you see, a bit, how His urging us to be holy and godly is all based in love? How He longs to see us freed from this awful sickness, this constant pain? How… How He bought us for this, with His very life-blood, when we were the ones who killed Him?
