“My eyes shed streams of water because they do not keep Your law.” (Ps 119:136)
There is so much heartache and pain in this world. God never intended for us to suffer as we do. What should the Christian reaction be to all the world’s problems? It is normal for us to feel sorrow over the effects of sin.
In your life, there will be people you love that hurt and you will look for answers as to why they are suffering. The answer is sin… sometimes it is others’ sins, sometimes it is their own, and sometimes it is a sin you committed. Sin destroys relationships, intimacy, progress, and hope. God’s moral laws are there for a reason and when we break them, we find it is us that is broken.
The world needs God – both His grace and His truth. As Christians, we should shed tears of the state of things. It doesn’t have to be this way.
“Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.” (1 Jn 3:4)
