January 03, 2023 – The Seperation Of Sin

The Seperation Of Sin

January 03, 2023
Daily Reading – Genesis 3 – 5 / Matthew 2


Genesis 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.


    “What is the big deal?” “Who does it hurt anyway?” “I can live my life any way I choose to, it is not anybody’s business but my own.” These are just some of the things I have heard people say over the years trying to justify their sinful lifestyles. The mindset of man seems to be that my sin really only hurts me. While it is true that sin ultimately will be most harmful to the person committing the sin, it is not true that it only hurts them. Truth is that sin separates.
    In Genesis 3 we found sin separating man from the beautiful place God had prepared for them. God in His mercy took man from the garden to keep them from eating of the tree of life, and then living forever in their sinful state. In chapter 4 we find Cain removed from His family and friends because of his sinfulness. In Genesis 5:3 we find that Cain is also removed from even being listed as Adams firstborn son. However, the greatest separation recorded in these chapters is found in our verse today. Genesis 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. Cain is separated from the presence of God and lived in the land of Nod. The word Nod means “Wandering.” That my friend is the worst separation Sin causes in anyone’s life. He lived out his life wandering around without God. 


Do not let sin separate you from friends and family. Do not let sin separate you from places you might want to go to. Most of all, do not let sin set you wandering on this planet separated from God who created you and loves you. 

Can anything be more horrible than that?
