WHATEVER BECAME OF YOUR SIN?
I JOHN 1:8-9
ON A BUSY CHICAGO STREET CORNER, ON A SUNNY SEPTEMBER
DAY, STOOD A STRANGE MAN POINTING HIS FINGER AT EVERYONE WHO
PASSED BY AND SHOUTING., "GUILTY!" - 'GUILTY!' AFTER
EXPERIENCING THIS UNUSUAL CONFRONTATION ONE MAN LOOKED TO HIS
COMPANION AND ASKED: "BUT HOW DID HE KNOW?"
COUNSELORS ARE OFTEN ASKED: "WHY DO I FEEL GUILTY?" THE
ANSWER FOR EVERY ONE OF US IS THAT WE FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE WE
ARE GUILTY. THE BEST MINDS THAT HAVE COPED WITH THE HUMAN
SITUATION KEEP COMING BACK TO THIS. THE EARLY WRITINGS OF
SIGMUND FREUD HAVE BEEN QUOTED FROM POLE TO POLE, YET IN HIS
LATER DAYS FREUD SAID HE WAS WRONG AT ONE CRUCIAL POINT. HE
SAID HE HAD UNDERESTIMATED THE DESTRUCTIVE NATURE OF MAN.
OUR MORAL ILLNESS IS SO ACUTE AND ITS SYMPTOMS SO

SIN, BUT HIS LOVE FOR PEOPLE CAUSED HIM TO BE CRUSHED AT WHAT
IT DID TO THEM. HE FINALLY CAME TO THE CLIMACTIC HOUR OF
TAKING OUR SINS TO THE CROSS WITH HIM AND THEfET- HE SACRIFICED
HIMSELF SO YOU AND I COULD BE CURED.
IN HIS LETTER TO THE ROMANS, PAUL PUT THE FAOTS OF THE
GOSPEL IN THREE SUCCINCT SUMMARY STATEMENTS:
FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE
GLORY OF GOD.
FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DFATHj BUT THE FREE
GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH
JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
IT IS TO THESE FOUNDATION FACTS THAT THE WORD OF GOD
CALLS US IN [ JOHN I:8-9: "IF WE SAY WE HAVE NO SIN, WE
DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US. IF WE CONFESS
OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS
AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS."
WHEN YOU ASK SOME PEOPLE, "WHATEVER BECAME OF YOUR SIN?'
THEY REPLYI "OH,-DON T HAVE ANY. THAT SORT OF THING UXED
TO BOTHER ME, BUT I'VE GOTTEN SMARTER. I'VE ...
