Job 5: 6-7 ” For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground. Yet man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward.”

We all are born with a sin nature.  You don’t need a teach a baby how to be crabby and out of sorts…they arch their little back, face beet red, as they let you know in no uncertain terms they’re unhappy!  No, thanks to Adam and Eve that sin nature has been handed down from generation to generation.  In Psalm 51:5 David laments about this sin nature when he says, “Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”  From the first Adam we obtained our sin nature…but the second Adam, Jesus Christ, came to redeem us from it.
