Someone asked me, recently, how do i preach on sin? My answer is, I dont. Here’s the method that has been effective for me: show that man has inherited a sin nature because of disobedience. However, God loved man so much that he sent His Son to be the sacrifice to redeem man from sin (John 3:16) and REMOVE the sin nature (2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Ephesians 4:24), leading man to walk in love (Matthew 22:37-40, John 13-34-35) and liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17). When you truly love someone, you’ll go out of your way to avoid hurting or offending them; when you preach love, the hearers become righteousness-conscious instead of sin-conscious and, thus, they live a life that honors God instead of offending Him!
