Recently, I went to Young Life Camp. One thing that really stuck out to me was that the speaker called sin, “A human disability.” We’re all born with a sin nature. We all have regrets or mistakes in our lives that aren’t humanly possible to fix. When we do things that aren’t pleasing to God, it’s because we’re making ourselves the center of our lives, instead of Jesus.
Maybe you’ve seen something on television or in a store and thought, if only I could afford to have that, then I would be happy. It would make my life so much better. Or how about, if I could just go back and do it over again, I wouldn’t have to feel so guilty.
The funny thing is, a lot of times even after we get the thing we were hoping for, we still aren’t happy. If we are happy, it’s only temporary. We’re always looking for someone or something to fill the void. The truth is only Jesus can truly love and forgive us the way we need to be loved and forgiven. Only He can cure us of our real disabilities.
The speaker said, “Jesus came and died for you and I, so that you could have the life you were meant to have—the life that you really always wanted.” Have you experienced an abundant life?
Please come into my heart and take away my disability: sin.
