Man has a choice as to how he will live his life

In reality there are two ways to live

mt 7 13 14

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Mt. 7:13-14
i what is sin


Failure to do good

Violating ones conscience

Sin comes about when we are tempted and give in to that temptation

I. What is sin?
ii why we sin

Jn. 3:19 (some love darkness)

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

II. Why we sin
rom 14 1 weakness

“Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.”

“As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.” (ESV)

Rom. 14:1(Weakness)
1tim 1 13 ignorance

Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

1Tim. 1:13 (Ignorance)
heb 10 26 out right rebellion

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins

Heb. 10:26 (Out right rebellion)

For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins (ESV)

iii is the way of the transgressor really hard

Satan wants you believe that it is not!

He tries to show “how sin brings comfort, pleasure, fame, power, and what is mistakenly called ‘a good time’”

III. Is the way of the transgressor really hard?

The pleasure of sin is what makes it attractive – but the reward of sin that appeals to us is only temporary

The pleasure of sin is fleeting and deceptive

gal 6 7 8

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh…

Gal. 6:7-8

shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

iv hardship and sin

Many hardships come in life because of our sins

Not all hardship that we suffer is due to our own personal sins

IV. Hardship and sin

Sometimes we suffer because of the sins of others – not the guilt of their sins, but the consequences


In this lesson we are looking at the hardships that we bring upon ourselves because of sin– that others suffer because of their sins

Consider the following examples:

is the way of the transgressor hard yes

Adam and Eve

Cain- jealousy and anger

Israel - Unbelief

Achan - greed

David – lust, sex

Is the way of the transgressor hard? YES

Judas – money, covetousness

The drunkard

How about the: liar, cheat, immoral, thief, etc.

They reap what they sow


Service to God in a world of evil may often cause hardship

What matters in this world and the world to come is WHY WE SUFFER!

1 pet 4 12 16

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy

1 Pet. 4:12-16

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer…


or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
