The Aftermath of Sin Sin Sin : A Storm in One’s Life Deceptive But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. (Heb. 3:13) Destructive For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 6:23) Damage Untold For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. (Ps. 51:3)
The Aftermath of Sin NOT David’s Regret and Repentance Did NOT: Restore Uriah’s Life Restore the Virtue & Honor of Bathsheba Save the Child Born of Fornication Erase the Knowledge That He Caused All of This Pain Pain, Not Only To Himself, But To Others. Sometimes “I’m Sorry” is not enough to undo the aftermath of sin! The consequences linger on, possibly forever!
Esau’s Sin Esau’s Sin -- Genesis Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30 He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.) 31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.” 32 “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?” 33 But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.
The Aftermath of Esau’s Sin See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. He could bring about no change of mind, though he sought the blessing with tears. (Heb. 12:16-17)
ESAUNOT ESAU: What NOT To Do When Tempted Yes At Moment of Temptation, Esau Said “Yes” Esau Exaggerated His Situation Esau Abandoned All Sense of Value Esau Followed Faulty Reasoning With Foolish Action undo After the Wretched Deal was done - there was nothing he could do to undo the wrong he had done! He had to live and suffer with the consequences of his sin.
What Could Esau Have Done? Refused the temptation. Placed his need into perspective. Focused on the value of what he was giving up in exchange for what he was getting. Refuse to follow through with foolish action!
Repentance & Baptism Will Remove Sin and Its Eternal Consequences. Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. (Rom. 6:3-4) God Gives Us Hope! And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Heaven
