The Promise Verses the Reality:
As a Christian, what is sin?
The book of Hebrews, tells us, it is, ‘an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.‘ (Hebrews 3:12) Not believing the Word, the Promise of God, whether it is about entering into the Promised Land, or believing we can live a life, pleasing to the Lord, is sin.
Abrahan believed God, and it was counted as righteousness. (Romans 4:3)
The Lord told Cain, if you do not, do well, sin lies at the door, and desires to control you, you must resist, it’s power. (Genesis 4:7) Jesus told Peter, satan desires to sift you like wheat. (Luke 22:31) James tells us, (James 1:14) ‘But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.’
That lust, can be for Power, Money, or Sex, or the jealousy of what someone else has that we lack. Whether Talent, Skill, Charisma, Wardrobes, Looks, or Personalities. Others often, seem to have a better life then ours.
We need to be satisfied either in want or in plenty. (Philippians 4:11-12) We need to learn to forget that whitch is behnd, and reach for what is before, pressing towards the prize of the calling of Christ, for our lives (Philippians 3:12-14)
In truth, we can see sins results in nature.
This stump, was once a strong platform for the anvil, carpenter bees made their home within, like sin in our lives it destroys.
Sin weakens us, hollows us out, we no longer are strait and true. We become unable to be a profitable witness for the Lord. People do not recognize Him within us. Sin, when finished, brings death. (James 1:15)
We need to submit to God and resist the devil. (James 4:7)
