This weekend must have been one aimed at all the things I do wrong. First, a friend spoke on archery. He talked about how archers would shoot their arrows at a target far away. Someone near the target would check and if he missed then they yelled “Sin!”. Sin is when we ‘miss the mark’ of perfection and do not obey God. I certainly miss the mark quite often.
Then on Sunday night in Youth Group, our topic was on how our sin separates us from God. Psalm 5:4 says, “You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with You the wicked cannot dwell.” God cannot stand to be around sin. The speaker that evening said, “God hates sin with the red hot passion of 10,000 white suns times 10,000”. That’s pretty hot! It certainly resonated with us all that God definitely hates sin.
