Lest you be carried off on the flood of their sins."(16:26)
How often do we flirt with sin?
Do we run up and touch it - then dash away?
Do we bat our eyes at it, thinking we are in control?
Sin is so real.
"Carried off on the flood". Not a trickle, or a small stream, or even a river.
One small bite of a forbidden fruit - flood over the whole world - our Savior crucified on The Cross - separated from God - resurrected - conquering the grave.
One small bite.
How do we go among the world and not allow sin to touch our soul? Not allow it to penetrate our life? To not be curious about it and stop to check it out?
How do we live being totally enveloped in Him?
It is when we decide to take control and do things our way - instead of His. Then sin touches us.
It is all about keeping our focus on God.
