Why I Shouldn't Want to Sin (pt. 2)

Last night we looked a little bit about why we shouldn't want to sin because it hurts the One who loves us.

Another reason why we shouldn't want to sin is that it cuts us off from God.

When we sin, we're walking in darkness and John tells us in 1 John 1:5 "God is the light and in Him there is no darkness at all. - If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. "

Is. 59:12 tells us; "But your inequities have separated you from God and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear."

It's a scary thing to thing about us being cut off from God when we sin... but that's the truth. There's absolutely no way that we can walk with God while practicing sinful activities at the same time.

We also know and remember what Romans 6:23 tells us about this subject: "For the wages of sin are death." This is a spiritual death which will be an eternal death in Hell - which God will have no part in. The thought of being eternally "cut off" from God's love should drive the desire to sin right out of us.

Let us always think about how awful it is to be cut off from God and His love.
