  Study Tools

Sin affects five areas of our lives.

1. Sin affects our HEALTH

A. Because of sin we die (Rom. 5:12; Gen. 2:16-17; 3:19; James 1:14-15)

B. Because of sin our relationships are imperfect (Adam and Eve)

C. Because of sin our perspective is flawed (1 Cor. 13:12)

D. Because of sin our world is corrupt

Psalm 32:3-4

2. Sin affects our HOME

Example: David

His sin: 2 Samuel 11:27

What happened: 2 Sam. 12:14-15, 18; 13:1-14; 13:21-29; 13:38-39; 15; 18:1-18

3. Sin affects our HAPPINESS

Psalm 51:12

John 10:10

4. Sin affects our HEART

Romans 6:23

Isaiah 59:2

5. Sin affects our HEREAFTER

John 14:1-3

Stress the two choices for the hereafter (eternity): heaven or hell. Having the sin of rejecting Christ forgiven affects the hereafter in that it reserves a place for the individual in heaven. Having this sin unforgiven affects the hereafter in that it reserves a place for the individual in hell.
