Topic: The Deception And Frustration Of Sin – from Seed of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche ” Date: Thursday, 22 February 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sin ruins sense; iniquity corrupts mentality.
It has been established from Scriptures that the act of sin is the root of deception and frustration in life. There are many people today in the eternal flames of hell fire who were deceived into eternity in hell on the account of sin.
Take note of these thoughts on sin:
1. Sin is a promise breaker. Adam and Eve never achieved what satan promised them when they sinned.
2. Sin is a heart breaker. Adam and Eve ended heartbroken because they could not achieve what the devil said they would achieve when they disobeyed God.
3. Sin is a destiny fighter. It was sin that ruined the destiny of Adam and Eve, and Samson.
What then are some of the consequences of sin?
1. Sin exposes the nakedness and wretchedness of man. The glory of God that covered Adam and Eve was lifted and their nakedness exposed by the lifestyle of sin.
2. Sin ruins sense; iniquity corrupts mentality. Adam who had high mentality to name all the animals on earth suddenly used leaves for cover because of a deterioration of mentality as a result of sin.
Beloved, if you are not interested in living a life that is denuded and wretched before God and man on your journey of life, repent from sin and surrender your life totally to God.
REMEMBER THIS: Sin ruins sense; iniquity corrupts mentality.
- Avoid the life of sin.
- Avoid the wrong company and every form of temptation that would lead you to sin.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for forgiveness from any sin that has held me captive. Deliver me from any form of temptation and help me to live for You, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
