The Problem

Right now, many of us are looking at one issue that is being claimed to be “the problem”.  May we look back a few years when, a British newspaper planned a series of articles on the problems of society.  In preparation, the editor sent inquiries to dozens of prominent citizens asking them “What in your opinion is the biggest problem with the world?”   Christian writer G. K. Chesterton received the survey.  He responded – 


“Dear Sirs, 


I am.  


Sincerely, G. K. Chesterton.”  


Sin is indeed the problem in this old world we live.  Unless we are forgiven and transformed – nothing else really matters.  That is why our Lord – Jesus Christ came, That’s the reason for His death on the cross and that’s why Easter matters – and will never be canceled.  They tried over 2000 years ago to cancel Easter and they failed – and they will fail again during the Corona Virus.  


We read in Scripture… “For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, …” Romans 8:3


An amazing rendition of this verse: “God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it.” Romans 8:3 “The Message”


Because He Lives,
