Isaiah 57:20-21; Romans 3:10-12, 14-18; James 4:1-4
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Saul turned away from God and sinned against Him. When Saul sinned, God sent an evil spirit to torment Saul. Saul’s life was in turmoil. David served Saul and played music to help calm him, but Saul’s soul would be tormented once the music stopped. David followed God and obeyed Him. His soul was at rest because God is the author of peace. Sin kills our peace just like sin killed Saul’s peace.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
