Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4).
There’s a certain definition of sin that reduces it to practically nothing. “Oh, it’s just a little white lie. Sometimes these things must be said in order to protect someone else’s feelings.” We white-out the sin making it almost seem like we were helping instead of hurting. The raw truth is: when we sin, no matter how insignificant that sin may appear to be, we are hurting someone else. Sin is lawlessness, and lawlessness puts everyone at risk.
I weep for the world today because of the lawlessness. Greed has caused politicians to remove all regulations so that bankers and other “money-men” can make obscene amounts of money. All of society suffers the consequences. Lust has free reign all the way from casual sex to human trafficking, selling little children for perverted practices. All of society suffers the consequences. I needn’t remind you of more, you know the cost of sin.
What is the cost of purity? Even more relevant, what is its benefit? Him! Intimacy with Him! Nothing else can ever match that!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
