Sin is costly. The damaging effects of sin is like a constantly dripping tap. When a tap is constantly dripping, not only is a lot of water wasted, but the constant drip becomes an annoyance. A tap dripping day and night is costly and it leads to irritation. When that tap is finally repaired, we come to first realize the cost we have incurred for the water wasted, and then we come to realize and value the importance of a dry tap – not dry in such a way that it does not have water, but a close-able tap in which water runs out only when it is opened. The same can be compared with us constantly sinning, or constantly complaining to God.
God paid the price for our sins by the blood of His Son Jesus Christ, He already fixed our sins, we only have to accept that gift of salvation by repentance and accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
God hates sin. Sin is ugly and irritating. Sin is costly.
With sin we open up our lives to the enemy. When we are constantly in sin, the enemy rejoices. The cost of sin is our souls, and the enemy knows that, that is the reason he makes sin seem appealing at first. A life led fully in sin is a wasted life, a life in constant indulgence in things of this world without regard for God is a wasted life, a life led accumulating and storing treasures in this world is a wasted life.
Sin seems enticing at first, but it is very costly. We cannot afford to say yes to the enemy, the enemy is not our friend.
The enemy wants our lives to go to waste, he wants us to be constantly dripping sin, he wants to steal our souls, he wants to fool us into believing that our lives cannot get much better, he deceives us that there is nothing that can wash our sins away, he deceives us that we are deep in sin and that there is nothing that can be done about it. Satan is a liar and the father of all lies.
The truth is, we are valuable, we were bought by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus became sin for us so that we can become free. We do not have to be slaves to sin. We have already been forgiven, we only have to accept that forgiveness and then lead a life that pleases God. Jesus is our atonement.
He Himself is the atoning sacrifice for our sins , and not for ours alone, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2.
We should never allow the enemy to drain our lives to waste, we are priceless, and the enemy knows that. We need to come to a point in our lives where we realize our innate worth in God, where we know who we are in God, where we know God as our Father. We cannot afford to allow the enemy to toy with our lives; the cost for that is our souls.
God has promised us life and life in its fullness. We belong to God.
We were bought at a price; the price was paid by the sinless Son of God. The enemy has no hold on us. The enemy has no place in our lives. God’s got us. God will bring us into a place of rest when we put our trust in Him. God gives us rest. He has already paid the price in full. In Jesus, our sins are washed as white as snow, and as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
