>…and be sure your sin will find you out.
No matter who you are, what position you hold in society; no matter how much you earn, or where you live, one fact is very sure: everyone of us is a sinner. The sad part is that many times we are deluded into thinking that we can and will get away with our sin. Yet, God’s Word tells us this will never happen.
As a child of God, we have two great and powerful forces that will keep us from getting away with our sin:
Powerful Force #1: Satan
As a blood-bought Christian, we have acquired a very powerful and terrible enemy: Satan. He wants to strike back at our heavenly father, and the best way he can do that is by striking out at God’s beloved children. Satan will not give up an opportunity like one where the believer voluntarily and willfully disobey’s God. The devil will use it to his full advantage to hurt God’s heart by destroying the believer.
Powerful Force #2: God
God loves us so much that He gave His only begotten son to die on the coss for our sins (John 3:16). He knows what sin we do because He paid for each one with the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our father also will not allow us to get away with our sin, because He loves us and desires to perfect us!
One time, a little child was shopping with his mother at the local grocery store. When they passed by the candy aisle, he spied out his favorite chocolate! Noticing that his mother’s back was toward him, he quietly snuck the candy into the shopping cart, hiding it below another package. Imagining that he was going to get away with his plans, the little boy couldn’t help but think how smart he was! That is, until they arrived at the checkout stand. Mother placed each item in front of the cashier, and low-and-behold, she came to the hidden candy! To make a long story short, the little boy got caught, and no, he didn’t get away with his sin! When I trusted Jesus Christ as my savior, and asked Him to forgive my sin, He voluntarily took all my sins (past, present, and future), and paid for them on the cross of Calvary! You won’t get away with your sin, because they were each paid for by Jesus!
In our foolishness, we think no one sees us sinning, but the truth is yes, we are seen and we will not get away with our sin.
…and be sure your sin will find you out.
