When we are young, we live our life as if there is no tomorrow. We live carefree lives and don’t worry about following God’s laws as much. You think you have all the time in the world to do as you please. As I have gotten older I have began to see that Sin cost something. Things you do when you are young, come back to bite you. Sin has a cost.
Some sins affect you when you are younger. You may start to lose things in your life that you consider valuable. You might lose your wife because of committing adultery. You may get drunk with alcohol and lose your job that you worked hard to get. You may lose your truck because you committed a sin that cost a lot of money to do such as gambling and drugs. You may begin to waste your money on riotous living and lose your most prize possessions.You may have a car wreck and lose part of your family or your own life. See sin cost us something. Maybe not right when we are living in sin, but it will soon enough. Death comes in all ages. Revelation 20:12 says: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Now if you know Jesus as your savior. God no longer sees that sin, he sees the blood applied. 1 John 1:7 says: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. Jesus death on the cross became your atonement for your sins. Romans 6:23 says: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus will cast your sins away. Psalm 103:12 says: As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Matthew 25:31-46 says:-When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
