Harming Ourselves

The way people smoke cigarettes day after day knowing that it is something that will increase the chance of health complications, such as hypertension, cancer, chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD) etcetera (National Health Service, 2015). Yet they go ahead and consume these cigarettes. They acknowledge the dangers but still choose to continue even if it leads to their death. Foolish right?

Well, guys its pretty much the same thing with when it comes to continuously, purposely sinning. We know that certain thing that we practice is a sin in the eyes of the Lord. We know, that one thing that we practice is leading us astray and closer to our graves.

Remember that ‘the wages of sin is death BUT the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’ (Romans 6:23). However, we still carry on as if it was ok.

We ought to cry out to the Lord asking Him for deliverance and help in order to break free. ‘Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you’ (James 4:7). God wants us to live not to die; He has offered His only begotten Son on the cross in order to save us from death. Let us not ignore such wonderful gift instead of purposely digging our graves day after day in our sins. ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness’ – 1 John 1:9
