Day 65: The Universal Sin

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
 – Isaiah 53:6

This verse of one of my faves. 

One of the difficulties many people have when witnessing is not offending the person being spoken to. When you evangelise, you want to get the message of the gospel across, but without ostracising the individual. 

This verse does everything for me. It illustrate the universal truth of sin, because there is one sin that each and every person on Earth has in common – disobedience.

It also demonstrates Christ’s sacrificial love for us. It’s a great piece of scripture to use when speaking to unbelievers, as it really simplifies our need for a saviour and our need to run back to Christ.
