 Anomia is a Greek word for sin that literally means "no law." It is breaking the law, or committing a transgression-which is stepping over the line. Using a basketball illustration, this is missing on purpose, similar to the first sin in the Garden. Adam knew what was wrong, he understood the consequences, and he sinned anyway.

In the face of our intentional sin, the need for God's grace becomes crystal clear. Quoting David who experienced God's grace when he missed on purpose, Paul wrote, "Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered" (Romans 4:7; cf. Psalm 32:1). The word "transgressions" is also translated from anomia. God forgives our purposeful misses with His boundless grace in Christ when we trust in Him (Romans 4:5). This trust leads us to a saving repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10).

Have you been missing on purpose? Do you know what is wrong? Do you understand the consequences, and are you sinning anyway? Trust Christ and repent.

Happy Fourth!
