1046th -- Sin - The Hard Master


It's amazing to me how people refuse to come to God. They would rather 
take pleasures in alcohol, in drugs, in sexual perversions. What they fail 
to realize is that sin is pleasurable for a season, but it is also a hard 
master. It will take from you all that you hold dear and leave you with 
nothing. But on the other side of sin, we have the Lord Jesus Christ. The 
Lord Jesus died for us so that we might be forgiven, redeemed and made 
righteous before God the Father. His plan for us is to be with Him in 
fellowship, in communion, in oneness. He wishes to give us all that we 
lack and all that He wants in return is our love and devotion to Him. It 
is easy to love God once you to experience the peace that He gives. Peace 
that surpasses all understanding, Peace in the midst of struggles, Peace 
in the midst of heartache. Such peace can never be found in the perversions
of this world. 

If you have fallen away from the Lord and have given in to these 
“pleasures”, I want you to know that your ending will not be a pleasurable 
one. Every sin, every perversion, every lustful act will require judgment 
by a just Judge and He will give every person exactly what they deserve. 
It will not be a matter of good works outweighing the bad, but rather 
judgment that is just and right for all that we have done wrong in our 
earthly vessels. The Bible declares in James 1:13-15 “Let no man say when 
he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, 
neither tempteth He any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn 
away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it 
bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

It is to your own detriment if you continue in the path of sin. So why let 
it? Why let sin keep you from the goodness of God? He wishes to forgive 
you, to redeem you and to cleanse you of all unrighteousness. It is a free 
gift given to all mankind and all one has to do is simply accept it for 
themselves. Repent my friend if you need to and know that God offers you 
forgiveness through His Son Jesus Christ. The past can be washed away and 
your future can be forever secured, but you have to take the first step in 
calling upon the Lord. I pray that you will make that courageous step if 
you need to.

The Lord Jesus Christ makes salvation very simple. One must simply confess
their sins, repent of them which means to turn away and accept the 
finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ for yourself by accepting Him as 
your Lord and Savior. The Bible declares in Romans 10 9:10 “That if thou 
shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine 
heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For 
with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth 
confession is made unto salvation.” Remember that God loves you and 
wishes for you to be saved. No matter your sins, no matter your mistakes 
and shortfalls, a new beginning is possible with God. Don't let your past 
keep you in bondage. Confess it and give it to God and allow Him to 
exchange it with His mercy, love and grace that surpasses all understanding.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him 
while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man 
his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy 
upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men 
count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any 
should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: 
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though 
they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and 
obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, 
ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”

Psalm 103:10-12 “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us 
according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so 
great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from 
the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
