Let’s start with the question: what is your definition of sin? Something you do wrong, disobeying the commandments…?
The Bible shows us that sin is not only what you do wrong, but sin is also when God stirs your spirit to do something, but you keep on ignoring His voice. For instance like giving a Word to someone, praying for someone, giving bread to your neighbor…
The Greek word for this sin is “hamartano” which means to miss the mark. The Strong’s however add some more meaning to this Greek word – not only to miss the mark, but also not sharing in the prize!
You see – when we as Christian’s sin - doing what is wrong, the consequences is God’s discipline. When we however commit the sin of “hamartano” – He will not discipline us, but we will miss the prize, the reward He wants to bless us with if we are obedient!
If you are obedient in what He asks you to give, then the reward is a harvest. If you are obedient in giving a word to someone, the fulfillment is seeing the change in someone’s life.
It is like a person shooting with an arrow – if he misses the mark, there is no prize. If he shoots the bull’s eye, there is a prize.
Listen today to your Master, where He asks you to aim, then shoot a bull’s eye, and receive a heavenly reward!
