Like a deadly disease that keeps spreading when it goes unchecked, sin will continue to grow and cause more and more damage if you allow it to rule in your life, ultimately keeping you from eternal life.
Focus on the why! Be reminded today and everyday that Jesus made a way for you to get close to the Father.
Their is a plague of sin running rampant in the world today. People are dying in their sins and they don’t want to hear anything else about it. Are you willing to stand for them in prayer?
Later on in history, a descendant from the tribe of Judah would bear the blame for all too! Jesus was a descendant from the tribe of Judah. His sacrificial death on the cross paid the price for everyone’s sin.
Our sin and wrongdoing hurts our relationship with God and others.
God saw that the people of Ninevah made a complete 180 and started crying out to Him. That is what God wants in the first place. He is looking for people who put Him first above everything else.

We shouldn’t be surprised when we see evil multiply as people turn their backs on the Lord.
God puts obstacles in our life so we don’t screw up. But many times, we push through those obstacles because the sin is so enticing.
Shame on us when we want God to move on our terms! He is God, He dictates the terms! He has loved us, cared for us and even let His Son die for us. Yet we still try to dictate our the terms of our relationship with Him and then get angry at God when He doesn’t come through!
