Imagine if you or someone you loved was diagnosed with H.I.V. One can imagine that this could be the worst news that most people would ever want to hear. However, I also want you to imagine that there was a cure for H.I.V but it was very expensive. Let’s say the cost was 2 million dollars. Would you be willing to pay for the cure or invest in it for your loved one? Most people I know would.
One of the worst diseases in this world is sin. It is the root cause of sickness, disease, pain, depression, death and so much more. So many people there be that suffer from this eternally catastrophic disease yet none seem excited for the cure of Jesus Christ. We seem to be more swayed by the fruits of sin than sin itself. This is not a surprise or mere coincidence.
The devil has deceived us into accepting sinful lifestyles as we slay the voice of our conscience and the Holy Spirit. This then allows us to feel free and at peace in sin but in the end it’s the greatest deception of all. Let us not wait for calamity when the wages of sin comes to fruition when we then come to our senses. I urge us all to mediate upon the disease of sin and appropriate the cure of Jesus Christ.
