Looking For Meaning

Having been in the church my whole life, I can tell you that one of the most difficult things to get across to people is the importance of a correct understanding of sin. Nobody likes to talk about sin. Sin is a very personal, very private thing and we don’t like being vulnerable or letting people know that we fail. Well, we DO fail.

Romans 3:23
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

If you look closely, there is a little three-letter word in that sentence. It is the word “all.” That means it is talking about every single one of us. We have all sinned.

Sin creates a terrible after-effect. Once we sin, our relationship with God is broken and it separates us from Him. God created us to be with Him and to share in His glory and beauty. When we separate ourselves like that we can no longer carry out our purpose. We no longer have any meaning in our lives.

Can you imagine living a meaningless life? Look around you. Every person who has not been reconciled to God is doing just that. That is why everywhere we look we see a world that seems to be lost in darkness, not knowing right from wrong or good from bad.

Our world is lost and there are people who cannot find their way. There is only One who can restore them and make them whole again. That is Jesus.

Why is understanding sin so vital? It is the key to restoring what is wrong in the world around us. You possess the answer that they are searching for. When are you going to tell them that their brokenness can be fixed?

There is meaning in life. We find it in being restored to the One who created us for a purpose.
