A Greater Danger
With justifiable alarm, we are witnessing a new and dangerous disease race around the globe. As fatalities increase, we take measures to try to protect ourselves and others. There is, however, a danger far greater and more pervasive than COVID-19.
In the Bible, we are told of a woman who approached the king to ask a favor of him. We don’t know her name; she is described only as a “wise woman.” Her words to the king were indeed wise, and among them was this short statement, “We must … die.”1
Of course, you already know we will all die some day. The question is not if we will die; the question is only when, and how. Why must we all die? The Bible gives us the reason: “By one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”2 We cannot help that we are born with the tendency to sin, but each of us has also become guilty of deliberate acts of sin.
No amount of hand washing or disinfectant can halt the spread of sin; the entire human race is already infected, and what’s worse, the mortality rate is 100%. Physical death is only part of the result of this “disease” called sin. The far greater consequence extends throughout eternity.
The Bible says that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”3 God is absolutely holy, and any sin is unacceptable to Him. Anyone who dies with their sin unforgiven is forever separated from God, and consequently from all that is good. Jesus Himself repeatedly warned about the great danger of eternal punishment. Dear friend, this is real! God has provided a remedy, but if you haven’t received it yet, you are at this moment still in tremendous danger.
An Effective Cure
COVID-19 has experts racing to develop an effective vaccine—and other medical treatments—which we hope will prevent the loss of many lives. But I’d like to point out that God has a plan in place to combat and ultimately cure the sin pandemic. Below is a quote from John 3:16 in the Bible:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”4
Another Bible verse says, “the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.”5 How does this work?
As the Bible says, these are “good tidings of great joy.”6 Jesus Christ came to this world with a mission, and that was to provide the cure for our sin. His miracles and His gracious life were proof of His divine power and merit, but these were not the solution. Our sin requires death, and so He intentionally went to a Roman cross, and there willingly died. As He suffered there, we learn from the Bible that God was punishing Him for our sins. “The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”7 Jesus never sinned, but took our place to endure the judgment we deserve. He died; He was buried; He rose from the dead.
“Whosoever believeth in Him,” John 3:16 says. God loves you and longs to save you from your sin and from eternal death. He offers every guilty, sincerely-repentant sinner the gift of salvation, simply through fully trusting Christ alone. Trusting yourself or any other way of salvation will never work. “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”8 Yes, the danger of judgment for our sins is very real. But you can have forgiveness and cleansing from all those sins through the Lord Jesus Christ. “The wages of sin is death,” but the good news is: “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”9
