“Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.” (Psalm 19:13-17)
There are seasons in our life when we find ourselves stuck in sin. Some of us might be struggling right now to overcome a specific sin in our lives, while some of us have already given up to sin and have gone calloused already. Sin is dangerous. But of course, we don’t see it at first because when it starts to lurk in our hearts, it seems inviting, it tastes sweet, and it feels good. Little did we know that it is Satan’s bait to steal, kill, and destroy us (John 10:10).
Sin separates us from God and it makes us numb to hear and experience God. However, many people still give in to sin because of the pleasure it brings to our flesh.
Colossians 3:5-6 says, “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.”
Yes sin feels good, but in the end it is also full of consequences that we have to pay. For example, a married man who becomes adulterous in the end might totally lose his family; a prostitute might suffer from deadly disease called AIDS; a thief might be put to jail; and liar might lose the trust of all the people surrounding him.
Sadly, when we start to reap the consequences of our sin, we then blame God for letting bad things happen to us. When in truth, God never intended that we suffer. Most of the things that are happening in our lives are fruits of our conducts.
John 8:36 powerfully declares, “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Let us not make ourselves slaves of sin. We are destined to live free, glorious, and powerful with God.
