Fear Sin

Sin is disobedience and God does not take disobedience lightly because it is despise to him. He is a supreme God and we owe him all allegiance because he expects absolute faithfulness from us. Because he is Holy, he expects us to aspire to be holy. His omniscient nature convinces us that he knows our frailty as imperfect creatures yet He expects us to be holy. In this case though He knows our imperfection, we should try as much as we can not only to try to be holy we should desire to be holy.

God has provided us with ways of escape in His Holy Word. “Run away from sin and sin will fly away from you”. When we desire not to live in sin He will provide us with the necessary courage and grace we need. Our duty is to try and he will help us. Since he is our creator, he knows our capabilities hence he say “ be ye perfect as your heavenly is perfect”, also “…without holiness no eye shall see God” for “His eyes are too holy to behold iniquity” Remember God cannot compromise his standard for anyone. So we must try!

There is a popular phrase in my area: “The Lord is good all the time!” My brethren, the Lord is not all that good all the time. Inasmuch as his mercy endureth forever, we should not take his mercy for granted for he can withdraw his mercy if he wishes. St. Paul asked: can we continue in sin that grace may abound? The grace and mercy of God are there for us to make use of them. If we don’t, He cannot force us.

On the day of reckoning He will reward each one according to his work. But the most dreading is the consequence of disobedience. The consequence of disobedience surpasses the pleasure therein. It may take one few minutes to glory in sin but the consequence lasts for a very long time.

David was a man after God’s own heart but when he committed sin, though he was forgiven, the very act cost him peace in his family.(2 Sam 11- 18)

We know very well that His is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Just as the Lord is good all the time, and his mercy endureth for ever, so also is he fierce when he is provoked. Of course he is a consuming fire. He has given us long time to turn away from our ungodly doings by warning us. If He will be this harsh on David his beloved, how much more on others. Remember there is reward for every deed whether good or bad.
