We’ve been examining your questions in our series, “Can I Ask That?” This week we are looking at your questions about sin. Specifically: Is it wrong to keep sinning if we know that God is going to forgive us?
Interestingly, Paul discusses this exact question in his letter to the Christians in Rome. Paul writes about the power of sin, not just about a sin. Sin is more than the sum of human misdeeds. Sin for Paul is a force to be reckoned with, a force set against humanity and God alike.
Sin takes advantage of the person and compels one to actions contrary to one’s best understandings and intentions. This week, we will discuss the influence sin has in our lives.
- In your own words, what is the difference between a sin and the power of sin?
- Where do you see the power of sin still at work in our culture?
- How have you experienced God’s grace in the midst of sin?
- How can we extend God’s grace to each other as we struggle with sin this week?
