When Christ bore my sin, He didn’t just go straight to Hell. I often think that He did. Why? Because I treat sin as being bad only for the consequence that I were cast out of paradise.

But that is not the case. Before Jesus descended to Hell, He was beaten, mocked and spit on; He then died a slow, painful death. Note to self: this was all on earth.

My sins, therefore, have a terrible price that hard to be paid on earth as well: another reason to hate the sin that I have. Here’s to hating it as God hates it.
