Lest you be carried off on the flood
of their sins."(16:26)
How often do I flirt with sin?
Do I run up and touch it - then dash away?
Do I bat my eyes at it, thinking I am 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 I go among the world and not allow sin to touch my soul? Not allow it to penetrate my life? To not be curious about it and stop to check it out?
Only by being totally enveloped in Him.
It is when I decide to take control and do things my way - instead of His. Then sin touches me.
It is all about keeping my focus on God.
