Pride goes before destruction! I see sin as a slap in the face of God who created us. As if to say I am the lord of my own life and I can do whatever I choose….more or less to say I don’t need anyone to tell me what to do especially God. Our society has gotten to a point where men are blatantly daring God and will continue to do so until He finally proves himself. (Click here and tweet this).
The prince of the power of the air is now very much in control. His easiest method is that of lust- for power, money and sex. Sadly many have been caught in its web. Can a man ever be truly well if he separates himself from his true source,I doubt? When we sin we lose a part of ourselves to the deceptive power of the enemy. (Click here and tweet this).The nakedness that ensued in the Garden of Eden due to sin is still prevalent even when the blood of Jesus freely speaks of a divine covering.
Sin will rob you of yourself value and reduce you to nothing. (Click here and tweet this). The devil first sinned and due to it lost his first estate. His desire is to cause you to be a stateless person like himself. A wanderer who has nothing to lay claim on except the worldly system which has also be taken by Christ. Sin has nothing to give you except hell on earth and also in eternity. (Click here and tweet this).
There is nothing painful than to be a slave to something you were created to overcome. (Click here and tweet this). Yes, it doesn’t matter what you believe or disbelieve, the breath of God is what makes you who you are. Within the capsule of the breath of God is the knowledge of good. Deep within the recesses of your spirit is the purity of God which is seeking to dominate the evil and sinful persuasions of the flesh. (Click here and tweet this). This can only happen when emphasis is placed on the word of God as the only way to dominate sin.
Becoming a slave to a vicious and tasking cycle of a lifestyle is debilitating. (Click here and tweet this). The sole purpose of sin is this- to keep you as a puppet to the doings of the devil, to make sure your God given talents, skills, abilities and opportunities never yield its full measure and finally to make sure that you never make to heaven but end up in hell.
Measure your life not with what politicians say but what the word of God says. (Click here and tweet this). At the end of the day, politicians come and go but God’s word will abide forever. Find the answers to your sinful deeds in the word of God and never give up the struggle to be free from sin. (Click here and tweet this). No one is perfect but through Christ everyone can be perfected. This will only happen when Jesus becomes the Lord and centre of your life and everything you do.
Question: As a child of God, what have been some of the consequences of sinning? Let me know your thoughts.
