A number of Flies were attracted to a jar of honey which had been overturned in a housekeeper's room, and placing their feet in it, ate greedily. Their feet, however, became so smeared with the honey that they could not use their wings, nor release themselves, and were suffocated. Just as they were expiring, they exclaimed, "O foolish creatures that we are, for the sake of a little pleasure we have destroyed ourselves."
True in context to Sin. Sin and sinful desires are also alluring in the beginning but seldom we know that it’s like quick sand that slowly and gradually devours its victim not only affecting his/her Spiritual health but also destroying Physical, Mental, Financial and Social stature of an individual.
How often people just for fun or out of curiosity indulge themselves in intake of drugs, alcohol, Idolatry, Witchcraft, Paganism, Sorcery, Adultery, Lust and all sorts of Sexual pleasures assuming that they shall easily come out of all this stuff whenever they want but to their surprise they find them entangled in its viciousness and what began with just curiosity and fun has led them into the bondage of sin with an end result of guilt, shame and condemnation- For the wages of Sin is death.
Beloved we shouldn’t be ignorant what Sin is for the Bible says that Lawlessness in Sin. Lawlessness is work of the flesh which are, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings these are the things that makes you slave to Sin and Sin to the enemy of your Soul – The Satan who delights in stealing, killing and destroying you and with no means does he comes to you.
Beloved are you the one who is entangled in the viscioness of the Sin then I have a Good News for you that your slavery to sin, death and satan can end in one brief moment and that is when you repent and confess your sins to Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him as your personal Lord and Saviour- For God our creator sent Jesus Christ His Son to become Sacrifical Lamb that takes away the sins of the world for in His blood is Holiness and Pruity that cleanses, purifies, scantifies and forgives a person from his/her past and present sins and renews within him/her a new heart free of guilt and condemnation and stamps with the Holy Spirit of God which is a gift of God unto those who believes and recieves Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
What begun with curiosity and fun has led you into Sin, Death and Eternal condemnation but God loves you and wants you to forgive your sins and heal, deliver and restore you in His image and likeness through His Son Jesus Christ; but the choice is yours what shall you choose Life or Death? Blessing or Curse? Deliverance or Bondage? Forgiveness or Judgment? Heaven or Hell?
Bible teaches that: Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires. Then when desire conceives, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is full grown, it gives birth to death.”
May God of all grace and mercy help each one of us to live a Holy, Upright Christ centered and Christ glorifying life for we shall all have to stand before God on the great day of Judgment and give account of ourselves.
Remember Pleasure bought with pains, hurts.
