The Weight of Sin

Young Yi


Sin is when we as humans, fail to reflect the image of God in nature, attitude, or action. The reality of sin is that when committed, we fall out of sync with God and become separated from Him. How does one remove this separation between God and man? Young Yi shares the deep weight of sin on this world and how it runs rampant today. In light of this, the Good News for us is that through faith alone in Christ alone, the separation between us and God can be bridged.

Listen Listen

How lonely sits the city
that was full of people!
How like a widow has she become,
she who was great among the nations!
She who was a princess among the provinces
has become a slave.

Lamentations 1:1


She weeps bitterly in the night,
with tears on her cheeks;
among all her lovers
she has none to comfort her;
all her friends have dealt treacherously with her;
they have become her enemies.

Judah has gone into exile because of affliction
and hard servitude;
she dwells now among the nations,
but finds no resting place;
her pursuers have all overtaken her
in the midst of her distress.

Lamentations 1:2-3


I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you;
I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
to open the eyes that are blind,

Isaiah 42:6-7


For these things I weep;
my eyes flow with tears;
for a comforter is far from me,

Lamentations 1:16


Zion stretches out her hands,
but there is none to comfort her;

Lamentations 1:17


They heard my groaning,
yet there is no one to comfort me.

Lamentations 1:21


My eyes are spent with weeping;
my stomach churns;
my bile is poured out to the ground
because of the destruction of the daughter of my people,
because infants and babies faint
in the streets of the city.

Lamentations 2:11


What can I say for you, to what compare you,
O daughter of Jerusalem?
What can I liken to you, that I may comfort you,
O virgin daughter of Zion?
For your ruin is vast as the sea;
who can heal you?

Lamentations 2:13


Why should a living man complain,
a man, about the punishment of his sins?

Let us test and examine our ways,
and return to the Lord!

Lamentations 3:39-40


Own up to your sins

Confess and repent your sins to others and to God

Return to God’s Word

The hands of compassionate women
have boiled their own children;
they became their food
during the destruction of the daughter of my people.

The Lord gave full vent to his wrath;
he poured out his hot anger,
and he kindled a fire in Zion
that consumed its foundations.

Lamentations 4:10-11


Sin leads to death. Repentance leads to life. God will save His people.

But you, O Lord, reign forever;
your throne endures to all generations.
Why do you forget us forever,
why do you forsake us for so many days?
Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may be restored!
Renew our days as of old—
unless you have utterly rejected us,
and you remain exceedingly angry with us.

Lamentations 5:19-22


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

2 Corinthians 5:17
