Humanity’s gravest danger is sin. This heinous spiritual cancer plagues all humans. Thankfully, Jehovah through His Word provides an all-sufficient remedy for sin.
- God’s Word identifies sin. “Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105). We can know what is true and hate every false way (Psalm 119:104, 128).
- God’s Word prevents sin. “Thy word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against Thee…I have restrained my feet from every evil way that I may keep Thy word” (Psalm 119:11, 101). The Scriptures produce a healthy and proper reverence for God; “My flesh trembles for fear of Thee, and I am afraid of Thy judgments” (Psalm 119:120).
- God’s Word remedies sin. It offers salvation (Psalm 119:41) which gives life (Psalm 119:50) and provides an escape from sin’s dominion (Psalm 119:133).
How wonderful are the testimonies of God! (Psalm 119:129).
