Resist Sin

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply

“In carrying on YOUR contest against that sin YOU have never yet resisted as far as blood” (Hebrews 12:4).

Today’s scripture reminds us that we must resist sin to the point of bleeding.   But before someone can resist a sin he must be able to identify a sin.   Too often these days people do things without even knowing that they are sins.  They smoke, they get tattoos, then fornicate.  The world says this is authorized.  The bible says this is prohibited.

Once you know something is a sin, it must be avoided.  If you repeatedly sin then you love that sin more than you love God. And that makes you a faker. Sin must be avoided, fought, and conquered.  We must love Yahweh more than we love sin.
