Sin Results In Suffering

Lamentations 3:37-45

In my Bible, I have a newspaper clipping that shows a once-beautiful 31-year-old woman with tears dripping down her face and lifeless eyes staring into space. The headline above her picture reads, “Drugs take your soul away.” Because of drugs, she killed someone and will spend her life in prison. Sin results in suffering!

People may suffer because of their own sins or the sins of others, including employers, businesses, or governments. In any case, sin causes suffering.

The good news is that God is a saving and forgiving God, a sanctifying and cleansing God, a healing and restoring God. The Scripture says, “Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching . . . preaching . . . and healing every sickness and every disease among the people” (Matthew 9:35, NKJV).

Jesus is coming to you. If your sins have brought suffering, confess them and He will forgive you. If your suffering is caused by the sins of others, relinquish it to the Lord. Jesus Christ will start the healing process within you. There is forgiveness, restoration, and freedom for you through Jesus Christ the Lord!
