Sin has the power to take all that Jesus has for us and crumble it to nothingness. It waits for the moment that it can execute the most crippling blow possible. It tries to fight off all opposition. It seeks us out in advance before it strikes. It watches us. Sin knows when we are weakest. When it hits us it latches on like a leech, hoping to suck all that brings your life into this world away, feeding on your suffering.
But sin does not just stop at making you suffer. Sin will use you as a host. It is a parasite that seeks to reproduce to other targets. Once it’s hooked onto you, the sin will use you to make others fall into the cycle. Sin seeks out the best way to destroy our strong holds. Instead of attacking at our walls, it eats away the ground beneath us, causing us to fall into the pit of darkness where other sins lurk; waiting for their opportunity to strike.
One sin will easily blow through. Easily cured, you can continue on with little problems. But multiple sins will slow you down, they will drain your energy, making it possible for even more to catch up and climb aboard.
Eventually left untreated, sin can cause depression, thoughts of self-worthlessness, bad decisions, sticky situations, the ruining of relationships, divorce, anger, frustration, jealousy, self-loathing, and possibly even suicide.
What do we do with the species of sin? Don’t just treat the species, treat the whole kingdom of sin. All of it is evil, all of it slows you down on the path of God, and some even turn you away. Sin does anything it can to attack you. And when it sticks, others will follow.
Find the cure today. Call out for Jesus.
