Sin: Day 4

Read Romans 6:19

Talk about sin and wickedness: According to this verse, sin is like a black hole of ever-increasing wickedness.

Talk about bad habits: Imagine this- You develop a habit of falling into temptation of one specific (or a variety) sin (or sins) over and over again. As you continue to do that, the urges become stronger and it becomes easier to fall into the tempting trap. For example, let’s say you told a silly lie to your parents at one point. If you continue to lie to your parents after this incident, it will become easier to repeat it again.

Ask about falling into sin: Why is it so easy to fall into sin at this point?…We have distanced ourselves from God, basically rejecting everything that he has told us to do.

Ask about avoiding sin: What is the only way to avoid sin?…Commit to a fully-devoted relationship with God, following every command no matter what. The more devoted you are, your desire for sin tends to decrease, but you will still be tempted.
