The Gravity of Sin

5 Apr

The Gravity of Sin…

Everything with mass has gravity and pull, and attracts other objects. The mass of the earth pulls us to its center. If we can break out of that gravitational field, we are free. We would have no more weight; we could float. Outside of gravity, there’s no burden.

Sin has spiritual gravity. First comes the pull of sin, then the heaviness and the burden of sin. How do you deal with sin? Like the law of gravity, you get far away from it as far as possible.

First get away from the actual sin and then away from the vicinity of it, the circumstance and the people that would tempt you, the suggestion, the situation, the shadow, the thought of that sin, the proximity to that sin.

How do you get away from gravity? Move in the direction of the heavens, closer to the Lord, to His word and His love, His activities, to the people and places of God, to the worship and the will of God.

Draw closer to God, and the pull of sin will release. Your life will become light and free, because in the heavenly places, there is no gravity.

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:7-8

Surround yourself with God’s word, His people and His worship; so that sin has no pull on you and no temptation will distract you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
