Let Go of Sin

Description

There is nothing more destructive in our lives than sin, because nothing keeps us from getting in the flow of God's plan like sin.

And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. Mark 9:43-45

Think 

There is nothing more destructive in our lives than sin, because nothing keeps us from getting in the flow of God's plan like sin. Sin is like a cancer.  It must be removed, or it will steal the life from us and keep us separated from God.  

If you had access and the means to obtain the cure for a disease that attacked your body, it would be ridiculous to ignore it. The same is true with sin. If you know what is keeping you from getting the most out of life, it is ridiculous to continue holding onto it. What Jesus is telling us here is that sin dealt with effectively is sin dealt with radically.

Pray 

Thank God for giving you all that you need for right living.  Ask Him to help you walk away from any and everything that's keeping you from Him. 

Act

Commit to the radical removal of any sin in your life. This week, take steps to cut off whatever triggers the sin in your life. Add a filter to your computer, drive a different route to work, or whatever else it takes to deal with the sin that has hold of you.
