The first time that sin is used in the Bible is in Genesis 4:7: “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” This scripture is referencing God talking to Cain and expressing how sin was attracted to Cain. Everywhere that Cain went, sin was present and ready to jump on him. Sin is attracted to us as well. If you are not in the place that you should be with God, you open up the door for the sin that’s already waiting for you.
Sin is attracted to you. God has a way of escape.
When we look at the name Jesus, the purpose of that name is to save us from our sins. Matthew 1:21 says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” There was so much sin in the world that Jesus decided to come and destroy sin and make a way of escape for us from sin!
