Sin & Consequences

“Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.” (John 5:14)

            When Jesus healed the man by the pool of Bethesda, what was His warning to him?  Avoid sin and the consequences which accompany it.  Oftentimes, the blessings which God pours upon us can become curses if we allow the good things to lead to complacency in our hearts.  Remember the dogs which returned to their vomit and the pigs which went back to the mud?  That’s the danger.

            When good things become ultimate things, we forget the reason for the blessing.  Second chances are chances to do better… to love better, serve better, and sin less.  When the Lord gives you your legs back – use them for running from sin.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
