What are the effects of sin on us as believers?

Well, it will harden your heart. I just happened to have a book on that. It’s called ‘Hardness of Heart’ and addresses the crisis and causes of a hard heart, and also reveals the cure.

What are the effects of sin on God’s heart toward us?

Sin won’t change God’s heart towards you in the sense of Him stopping loving you. Sin will change your heart towards God. The effects of sin on our hearts include making our hearts insensitive towards God. Our experience of God and the things of God will be affected by sin. We won’t experience the love, joy and peace of the Holy Spirit like we would if we were not living in sin. We won’t experience healing. It will cost you.


what are the effects of sin answered in scripture John chapter ten

Satan is out to steal, kill and destroy. If you live in sin, I guarantee you Satan is going to extract his pound of flesh from you, when you commit to him. So, you don’t want to give Satan and inroad into your life.

Sin can be harmful to born-again believers

What are effects of sin on relationship with God

The effects of sin include a hardened heart

I don’t want to harden my heart towards God because I have a relationship with God, and I love God, I just don’t want to displease Him. You know, the Bible says without faith, it’s impossible to please Him.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:6

Now God loves me regardless, even when I fail but man, I want to go beyond just what is the minimum that I’ve gotta do in order to have a relationship with God. I want God to be pleased with me. If I’m living in sin that lifestyle is not pleasing to God. So I avoid sin and aim to live a holy life because I love God that’s number one. I also do it because I don’t want the devil to have an inroad into my life.

The effects of sin on our witness

I also aim to live a holy life because I don’t want sin to affect my ability to witness to others about God. I don’t want to be sitting here and giving Satan an opportunity to discredit me and my message, because people look at me and think I’m a hypocrite.

So these are the effects of sin on a born-again believer and they give good reason to avoid sin and live a holy life.
