Salvation to most people is, staying away from sin. We are born of sin but it is by the redemption of the blood of the lamb that we are made new,of no sin. Desire as the bible says gives birth to sin which in return results to death, though the products of sin maybe rewarding for a while, whatever is got of sin whithers and just like dust disappears without a trace.
Sin is a pest that out of desire you invite in, it pleases you, eats you slowly with a smile to a point you get soaked in so deep, then your thoughts become one of a lost sheep, one that thinks its beyond redemption, a walking corpse. So to sin you dedicate your body and destroy your soul.
To shear a sheep you have to give it lots of food. todays Christianity can be viewed so, in sin you get more, and more you want, the devil gives you lots of food, you grow big and so are those around you,then a time for shearing his sheep comes, and you become one with the lost, awaiting slaughter.
There is no extend to what sin can make us do. Look at the story of Herod and John the baptist,it is out of the desire to call people to the gospel that John questioned Herod about marring Herodia his brothers wife. That was all kind of sin from sexual sin, to perverting to hatred, for you cannot tell me Herod’s brother took it lightly, it went as far as to murder in the most in human way.
How long had Herodias wanted John out of her way? The erotic dance then, presenting itself to her,do you think the devil had no hand in that? That conniving lier knows well to present a good opportunity , you think he doesn’t know what you love? If its money he shows you where to steal, come to sex he provides lots of chances , ladies keep coming your way,men shower you with praises, the devil knows well how to haunt, he then blinds you from the truth making them that enlighten you the enemies, they become church people, pretenders, judges, when all they simply do is call you to the truth.
By sin of no sin John died, he died for doing good. In the same situation someone else would have beautified sin ,smoothened it giving it the colour of gold, sparing life but condemning souls, and probably getting something of it. Don’t find pleasure in getting blessings from sin.
What happened to, we live by the grace of God , by faith, by believing in a better us, by trusting in his will,good thing we are given free will, i say, if its sin, soak your self in it and reap from its fruits, if its God live by him, like there is nothing else you got to do, don’t leave us confused of what you are. in a group of zebras try not to be coloured, different.
Choose the dance you want to be good at,don’t twist your legs trying dance both dances. A chameleon has never been known to walk faster for it has to adjust to each and every colour, explains why the hare is faster, think about it.
