πŸ‘‘ Sin Is No Joke

The present trend in American moral conduct is downward. Increasing thousands all about us are throwing restraint to the winds β€œto enjoy the pleasures of sin”.

Most of all, we have disregarded the Word of God. No longer does the Bible hold the first place in our homes. It rather lies gathering dust while our moral and spiritual strength is dissipated by pursuing pleasures that fail to bring true happiness or satisfaction. Yes, we have β€œa form of godliness” but our conduct β€œdenies the power thereof”.

Sin may be β€œfun” to many. They may joke about drunkenness, indecency and immorality, but God declares that it is no joke to Him. He says:Β β€œFools make a mock at sin” (Prov. 14:9); for, not only does sin in its very nature break down, rather than build up; but, as responsible creatures, sinners will one day have to give an account of their conduct to the God who created them.

To look at the brighter side, we may all rejoice in another indication that sin is no joke to God. St. Paul points it out in I Corinthians 15:3, where he says:Β β€œChrist died for our sins”. Christ knew the horrible results of sin and the dreadful penalty which justice must visit upon it. Yes, and He also knew thatΒ β€œall have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23), and in infinite love He left the glories of heaven and stooped to bear the disgrace and penalty for sin Himself! β€œChrist… hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust,Β that He might bring us to God” (I Pet. 3:18), and those who come to know God through faith in Christ experience peace and joy which this world can never afford. source

Bible Verse for 1/19/20

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13
