4 Remove Barriers

SIN SPOILS

Ink Blot on PaperSin is like an ugly blot on a clean page. Being selfish, lazy, thoughtless, and telling lies ruins your character. Sin destroys the happiness of a home or a friendship.✞

SIN SPREADS

Sin is like weeds in a garden. If weeds are not rooted out, they will soon overrun it. Little acts of dishonesty and disobedience soon become habits we cannot break.✞

SIN SEPARATES

Sun and Clouds Sin is like a thick cloud which blots out the sun. That is why God seems miles away. He is pure and holy. He hates sin. He cannot and will not look on sin. We need to remove barriers to God that block the way to him. Sin cuts you off from God in this life and in the life to come. Be quite clear about this. Hell is a grim and dreadful reality for all who reject Jesus Christ in this life.What are you going to do about it? You cannot remove barriers to God ourselves. You cannot save yourself. Trying to help others and doing good cannot remove this barrier either. If sin results in our being cut off from God, is there no hope for us? Has God washed his hands of us?✞
