We are “quick studies,” aren’t we? “Sin” is an old word that, for many, conjures up images of a judging, wrathful God who looks to smash us when we do wrong. The Bible tells us that Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him! (2 Cor. 5:21)
A recent health insurance commercial has the tag line: “LIVE FEARLESS!” It seems to me that fear is a completely appropriate response by sinners to a thoroughly holy God! We need to be quick studies in that truth!
