Oh, if we would remember this when we are tempted to sin. When we sin, we give opportunity for the Enemy of God (and us) to gain a foothold in our lives and in the world around us.
Sin is not private. It might be committed in private but it "will find you out." Numbers 32:23.
Kay Arthur writes, "Sin will take you further than you ever wanted to go. It will cost you more than you ever expected to pay."
Sin isn't funny. Sin isn't a game. Sin is serious. Sin doesn't just go away. We can't just forget about it.
"Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death." James 1:15
