  • What comes to your mind when you hear the word “sin?” How about words like disobedience, rebellion, failure, and guilt? Most people don’t like to think about their sin and what it does to themselves and others. I don’t like to think about sin, because it is ugly and it is painful. As a pastor, I wish I could tell you that I do not struggle with sin, but it would not be true. I am a repentant sinner that needs the forgiveness of Jesus. I need Jesus to fight against the temptations of my sinful nature and the temptation of the devil.
