Lets cut to the chase…SIN is defiance against God. Its a decision either deliberately or through ignorance to depart from God and do our own thing.
You will rightly ask how can we depart from God? The answer will shock you. Lets read Genesis 2:7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. The very life in us belongs to God, its His…!!
This is a profound statement, man can only experience life because of the breath of life given by God; hence all our thoughts, words and actions are accountable to Him…the one whose very breath of life we, are using to live our lives.
SIN as a spiritual concept FIRST therefore makes sense, that we are all accountable to God and by going our own way are defying God…defying the breath of life in our bodies…that does not belong to us…that belongs to Him. Now if you heard a voice inside say something along the lines of “I don’t want it, or how can I get rid of it”, you are confirming SIN as being defiance of God.
Our response should be – awesome God, teach me your ways so that I can live my life to the fullest!!
