I ran across that quote in MacArthur’s Murder of Jesus as I was preparing for Sunday’s discussion and it really struck a chord. Sin never truly satisfies. And yet, knowing this to be true, we oftentimes continue to sin anyway.
Why is that? Of course, everyone seems to have their own definition of what sin is. To me, and I suspect to most thinking Christians, sin is anything that separates you from Christ. As He said, it is a narrow path to Him, not the wide road that secularism paints for us. So, then, why do we choose to separate ourselves from our Creator for momentary pleasure?
