Kingsley Barrett in an Easter sermon, says: “Sin stings because it cuts us off from one another, because it cuts us off from God; this is the dreadful wound it inflicts. And God has dealt with it. ‘God commends his love to us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.’ So be reconciled to God, accept what God offers, the victory has come, and the sting is gone. Pain is not gone, sadness has not gone, death is real, death is hurtful, but the sting is gone.”
