If you were to ask 100 people, youʼre likely to get 100 different answers about what counts as a sin, what effects sins have, and what we can do to eradicate them. Fortunately for us, the questions middle school students ask about sin seem to be a little more focused. They typically want to know how they compare to their friends, if God will still like them, and if can they do anything to screw up their relationship with him. So, for the next 3 weeks, we are going to swim in the deeper end of their theological pool as we talk about sin and realize that everyone is “A Wretch Like Me.”
This week’s bottom line: Sin hurts us and those around us.
Last week’s bottom line: Nothing can take you from Godʼs hand.
