Does God Protect Us From The Consequences Of Sin?
While God loves us and desires to protect us from harm, He does not always protect us from the consequences of our sin. Sin has consequences, both in this life and in the life to come.
In Galatians 6:7, it says, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” This means that our actions have consequences, and we will reap what we sow.
However, God does offer us forgiveness and redemption through Jesus Christ. In 1 John 1:9, it says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” When we confess our sins to God and turn away from them, He forgives us and cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
It’s important to remember that even when we face the consequences of our sin, God is still with us and can use our mistakes for His glory. In Romans 8:28, it says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” God can use our struggles and failures to shape us into the people He wants us to be and to bring about good in our lives and the lives of others.
In summary, while God does not always protect us from the consequences of our sin, He does offer us forgiveness and redemption through Jesus Christ. And even when we face the consequences of our sin, God can use our struggles for His glory and bring about good in our lives.
