SINS AND SAINTS – Wed, Aug 07, 2019


Isaiah 59:12-13 KJV

For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

[13] In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

I think we live in a time where a lot of evil is underrated. Very nice names have been given to certain sins and by so doing have watered down the weight they carry as sins. For instance, one indulging in fornication could easily be described as having an affair. Nice and cute, isn’t it!!

But sins are sins, and no matter how we colour them, they still carry their potency.
Yes, they are potent enough to cause a separation between us and the most powerful being alive, Yahweh (v2). This is no small feat.

If anything has the power to cause the Almighty Himself to look away from His most beloved creatures, then that one thing must not be underrated. This is one of the reasons Yahweh is always in need of intercessors to stand in the gap (v16).

The weight of sins beset us all the time (Heb 12:1) and put us in a very vulnerable position for attacks of all manner. Sin makes us defenseless before the enemy, isolating us from the innumerable company and making us cheap shots for the enemy. Don’t be fooled by how society labels sin now. They are still potent and can bring you down.

Have a blessed day.
