What Is Your View Of Sin?
In a world of “relativism” and in a society where folks are discouraged from having standards of morality, it is hard to find people with a clear view of the dangers of sin and wickedness. Some seem to consider sin foolishness, or even some type of myth. This is not the case. Actually, “fools mock at sin” (Prov.14:9). It is sin which separates us from a relationship with God (Isa. 59:1-2). “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). What is sin? It is the breaking of God’s law, whether by going beyond, or falling short of what He has said (I Jn. 3:4, 5:17; Jas. 4:17). It results in our death (Jas. 1:14-15). Yes friends, sin is a serious thing
Yet, thousands died because they considered sin as nothing! Despite the pleading of Jeremiah, the Jews refused to walk in “the old paths” (Jer. 6:16). In the face of Ezekiel, they were hard-hearted and impudent as he pled with them to return (Ezek. 3:7). Others such as Elijah and Elisha, Hosea and Micah, Samuel and Malachi, as well as scores of others, both named and unnamed, (but all known to God) continued preaching God’s word for the purpose of getting people to repent of their sins. Some saw success (Jonah, Oded, etc.); while others died for preaching God’s will, and standing opposed to what the sinful people were doing (Heb. 11:37).
Therefore, we today have a choice. Will we consider sin as nothing, or will we stand with the Lord? The world will hate us for being God’s friend (Jn. 15:19-20), but God will reward us for standing up to sin and error and being His friend. Which will it be? Will we choose to follow God or Satan? Choose wisely. Your soul depends on it!
