JUNE 5, 2013 – POISON – What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘poison’?  Is it – Danger! Is it – Don’t touch that! Is it – Stay Away! If I tried to hand you a spoon of rat poison you would not touch it and you sure wouldn’t taste it. So why do we put our hands on sin? Why do we taste sin? Why do we look at sin and think about sin? Sin is poison, and until we look at it with those eyes we might just play around with it, thinking that it is harmless. You can’t play with poison – you wouldn’t play with poison. Yes, we do have God’s grace that covers our sin, and I think that a lot of Christians walk around with this mentality – “If I sin, God will just forgive me.”  Don’t try to dress up your sin – it is Poison! The poison of sin put the Son of God on the Cross because of God’s love for you. What do you think the poison of sin will do to you because of God’s love for you? Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? (NKJ)
