For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Jos 7: 1-12
Story: Israelites lost a battle under Joshua, Joshua starting weeping in front of God, immediately the Lord said to Joshua, “Stand up! What are you doing down on your face? Israel has sinned. They have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen, they have lied. That is why the Israelites cannot stand against their enemies. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy whatever was stolen. We know they destroyed the stolen item, and they won the next battle.
Lesson: Consequence of sin is serious, we many times takes grace so lightly. Remember Holy God loves the sinner, but our Lord will not dwell with us when we continue to sin. Lord desires to remove sin from us. Let us confess our sins to the Lord, as Jesus died for our sins.
Prayer is good, but now it is time to practice the word of God. Holy God wants us to be holy. He has done everything that is needed for us to live a victorious life. So let s stop giving excuse that we are weak to overcome our sinful nature.
Prayer: Father Lord, help me to be heavenly minded and do your will; and live in holiness. Amen.
