Here’s a question for you: When is sin a good thing?
Recently, I heard a preacher say, “The greatest gift that God gives to the people he loves is their sin — when they know it.”
I’ll let you digest that for a minute.
The preacher did not say that God thinks sin is good. Sin is what separates the creature from the Creator, the very thing that caused Jesus to die for us.
No, the preacher said that our sin, when we know it and own it and hate it, is a gift, a gift from God.
How can that be?
