Are you putting sin to DEATH or will you let sin DESTROY you?
The first sin ever committed was disobedience to God, tempted by the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life Adam and Eve sinned.
Sin is deceptive, lust will entice you, be so very careful, if you are not putting sin to death in your life it will destroy you. James 1:14 says, “each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.”
Each one of us is tempted when we are carried away and enticed by our own lust. James goes on to say in verse 15, “Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.”
Sin will destroy you, little by little, or all at once. Satan seeks to kill, steal, and destroy you. Your own flesh is at war with the spirit, and one sin can kill your joy, steal your peace and happiness, destroy your life, your marriage, your testimony, your walk, your witness, so you must strive to put it to death, kill it, root it up, you must strive for holiness, you must continually be praying for strength, guidance, and wisdom from God to destroy sin before it destroys you.
Get in the word and prayer and be transformed! “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)
