SIN AND ITS CONNECTIONS
MEMORY VERSE: Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.” – Psalm 107: 17
BIBLE PASSAGE: Genesis 3: 1-19
INTRODUCTION: What Is sin? People call sin by various names. Some call it mistake, some call it failure, and some call it human weakness or error. Whatever name you may decide to give to sin, every Christian must know that the immediate or remote destination of any act of sin is death. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.”

2. SIN AND ITS CONNECTIONS
DEFINITION, ORIGIN AND RESULTS
Sin means disobeying God and anyone who disobeys the Almighty God is in great danger. Sin also means violation of the perfect holiness of God -1John 3:4. Sin started with Satan -lsaiah14:12-14. Sin entered the world through Adam and Eve. Sin results to spiritual death, Romans 6:23. Unrepentant sinners will forever be separated from God. Not only will a sinner be separated from God, he will be tormented forever in hell-Matthew 25:46. Sin is vain talk-Pr 10:19; foolish thoughts – Proverbs 24:9, unbelief – Romans 14:23, all unriqhteousness, 1John 5:1.7. Sin aqainst The Spirit is unpardonable, Isaiah 63:10, Mark 3:29. Sin is bondage, Proverbs 5:22, 2Peter2:19. Concealment of sin is vain, Genesis 3:8, Ezekiel I8:12. The Bible enjoins us to confess all our sins to God, Leviticus 16:21, 1 John 1:9.
SIN AND ITS CONNECTIONS
Sickness is an agent of death. Sin leads to sickness because sin provides. sickness with a very conducive atmosphere to operate in the life of the sinner. Demons are also agents of death. Anyone who lives in sin is a slave of Satan – Romans6:16, 1John 3:8. Sin always connects the sinner with Satan. Poverty and hunger are agents of death -2Kings 6:24-29. Sin separates from God, Deuter 31:17, Matthew 7:23. It is repugnant to God, Genesis 6:6, righteous people- Genesis 39:7-9, sin causes shame, Genesis 3:10, death, physical and spiritual, Genesis2:17.
Sin facilitates sickness, demons, poverty, death and so on while holy living facilitates healthy living, freedom, long life, etc. Are you still connected with Sin? Pray that the blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse all your sins and break every power of sin ruling in your life.
