The Softer Side of Sin
The focus of this week is Christ’s death and resurrection. The reason for this is sin. Talking about sin has become uncommon not because we are not willing to talk tough but more because it’s not that interesting anymore. It’s had its day in the sun, its 15 minutes of fame, but today people are just not that into it. Sin has become whatever you want it to be. We installed our own definition and watered down the consequences, leading people to believe it wasn’t that important after all. What if Christ lost focus quickly and decided that sin was not that interesting anymore? Even if it’s not cool or in or interesting we still need to stay focused on the cost of sin. If we lose our understanding of sin we run the risk of forgetting the power of the cross. When the cross becomes irrelevant, love becomes irrelevant.
