We live in a world that has a tolerance for sin as though there are no consequences for living without God. There is not a day that goes by without hearing of a shooting, rape or some horrendous crime somewhere locally or nationwide!
If we tolerate sin then we are saying there is not a right or wrong way of doing things, but scripture clearly teaches that from the very beginning of creation in the Garden of Eden there was a choice to be made. It is the same choice for us as well today to choose sin or a life of obedience to God.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the spirit reap life everlasting”(Galatians 6:7-8).
Just because we can change our sex or slaughter babies by the thousands by abortions it does not give us the right to slap God in the face as though we know better. God does not make mistakes in what He has created, and it is the tolerating of sin that is separating millions of people from the love of God they so desperately need.
Thou shalt not kill includes the killing of oneself through suicide. Our lives mean so much to God that He sent His only son to die so that we may live and be saved from the sin that so easily besets us.
Today take the time to consider your choices and see if they are in line with the word of God, or are you on the road destined for the destruction of your mortal soul?
