Summary: Sin.

IT’S JUST NATURAL

PSALMS 51: 5

INTRODUCTION: THE CRIME STATISTICS FOR THIS YEAR ARE ALREADY ASTRONOMICAL. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, CHILD MOLESTATION, BANK ROBBERIES, AND HOMICIDE ARE THE ORDER OF THE DAY. FOR SOME, THE YEAR 2000 IS A CHANCE TO START OVER, TO PUT THINGS INTO THEIR PROPER PERSPECTIVE. HOWEVER, FOR OTHERS THE YEAR 2000 IS A CHANCE TO COMMIT MORE HEINIOUS AND SINFUL CRIMES THIS YEAR THAN THEY DID LAST YEAR. THE TRAVESTIES THAT OCCUR IN THIS COUNTRY AS WELL AS THOSE ABROAD OFTEN CAUSE OUR HEARTS AND OUR MINDS MUCH DISCOMFORT AND DISTRESS. BUT MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, DON’T BE TOO ALARMED OR AMAZED AT THESE SYMPTOMS OF SIN BECAUSE MAN IS DOING WHAT COMES NATURAL TO HIM. IN OTHER WORDS, IT’S JUST NATURAL.

I. TEXT

DAVID WRITES THIS PSALM AFTER HE HAS BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF COMMITTING ADULTERY WITH BATHSHEBA AND THE MURDER OF URIAH, HER HUSBAND. DAVID EXCLAIMS THAT IN THE BELLY OF HIS MOTHER, HE WAS A SINNER. ALL OF US ARE BORN NATURAL SINNERS.

AS A RESULT OF ADAM’S DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, HIS GODLY NATURE WAS REPLACED BY A SINFUL NATURE. CONSEQUENTLY ALL MEN WITH THE EXCEPTION OF JESUS, HAVE INHERITED A NATURE THAT IS IN CONTRAST TO THE WILL OF ALMIGHTY GOD.

THE STATE OF SIN IS UNIVERSAL, MEANING THAT IT HAS AFFECTED AND INFECTED ALL HUMANITY, ROM. 3:23 TEACHES, “THAT ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.” MAN, UNTIL HE REPENTS IS GOD’S ENEMY FROM BIRTH. MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS, IT’S JUST NATURAL

II. SIN

THE NATURE OF SIN CAUSES MAN TO MISSED THE STANDARDS SET BY GOD. SIN IS A FALLING AWAY FROM GOD. IN OUR WORLD TODAY, IT IS QUITE EVIDENT THAT THERE ARE MANY STILL IN A FALLEN STATE.

AS CHRISTIANS WE ARE NOT IMMUNE FROM SIN. AS LONG AS WE ARE IN THE FLESH, WE WILL BE PRONE TO SIN. HOWEVER, BECAUSE WE ARE NEW CREATURES IN CHRIST, WE ARE NOT TO BE HABITUAL SINNERS. ROMANS 6:14 TEACHES THAT SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER US. WE CANNOT USE THE FLESH AS A LICESNCE OR EXCUSE TO SIN.

THE STATE OF SIN IS A STATE OF CONDEMNATION, MEANING THAT MAN IS UNDER THE WRATH OF GOD. SECOND, IT’S A STATE OF DEFILEMENT; WE ARE FILTHY BEFORE GOD. THIRD, IT’S A STATE OF DEPRAVITY; MAN’S NATURAL MIND IS

DARKENED TO THE WILL OF GOD. FOURTH, IT’S A

STATE OF INABILITY; MAN CANNOT KEEP THE COMMANDS OF GOD. FIFTHLY, IT’S A STATE OF DEATH.

III. THE SYMPTOMS OF SIN

IT’S JUST NATURAL FOR SPOUSES TO CHEAT ON EACH OTHER. IT’S JUST NATURAL THAT LIES ARE TOLD; IT’S JUST NATURAL TO KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY.

SIN IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF EVERYTHING THAT IS EVIL. SIN IS THE CAUSE OF EVERY GRAVE EVER DUG, EVERY GRIEF EVER GIVEN, EVERY RELATIONSHIP EVER RUINED, EVERY HEART EVER TROUBLED, EVERY HOPE HELD HOSTAGE. SIN WILL COMPOUND A PERSON’S PROBLEMS, DARKEN ONE’S UNDERSTANDING, AND PERVERT ONE’S JUDGMENT.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST IS THAT HIS BLOOD CAN WASH US WHITER THAN SNOW. DAVID SAYS PURGE WITH HYSSOP AND I WILL BE CLEAN, WASH ME AND I WILL BE WHITER

THAN SNOW. DAVID ACKNOWLEDGED HIS SINFUL WAYS.

IF THERE IS NO JOY IN YOUR LIFE, JUST MAYBE THERE IS UNCONFESSED SIN. JUST MAYBE YOU ARE NOT WALKING WITH JESUS, JUST MAYBE YOU NEED TO BE CHANGED FROM A SINNER TO A SAINT. JUST CALL ON JESUS.
