We all talk about karma, but what really is karma? Karma is the spiritual law of cause and effect. For every cause, there is an equal and corresponding effect. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For example, if we throw a ball into the air, it will come down to earth again. Throwing the ball upward is the cause and its resulting downward return to earth is its effect. In the spiritual realm, this is a bit complicated. It pertains to a spiritual force or energy that is released that must result in the return of the same force or energy into equilibrium. One cannot get away with a crime or sin. What was hidden in the dark will be exposed in the light when we face our stern but loving Judge. Even our hidden thoughts will be exposed to the light. But we have an assurance of forgiveness from the Lord if we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior and confess our sins to Him. As the Book of Isaiah says, "though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool"(Isaiah 1:18). Our sins are washed clean by the blood of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ as though we have never committed any sin at all. Even its guilt and punishment are already paid for by the Lord. What remain are the consequences of sins for which we may suffer for quite some time as the resulting habit and evil inclination are being erased so that we will be transformed to the likeness and image of Jesus Christ. As Jesus is the Lord of the sabbath, He is also the Lord of karma for He already paid the full price of our sins.
