The Holy Spirit of God is Bringing the Sin
Here’s the spiritual domino effect that occurs if we don’t deal with sexual sin. First, you have the sexual sin. That’s the first domino. If it’s not dealt with, then you have the guilt that the Holy Spirit brings to the forefront of your mind. At this stage, it’s time to confess and to repent and to say, “I’m going to live a life of purity”. If you don’t, from the guilt phase, you pass to the hardness of heart. Hardness of heart is where when you sin sexually you no longer feel those guilt feelings. You rationalize guilt away. After that domino, the hardness of heart, you have apathy. Who cares? Then from apathy, the final domino is, sad to say, desertion. People spin on their heels and leave the church and who knows what happens to them in eternity? Sexual sin is unique in the fact that it is multi-dimensional. It does across-the-board damage when it’s outside the marriage bed. However, inside the marriage bed, it has across-the-board positive effects.
If we believe the statistics, many here are involved in sexual sin. It’s something a lot of people don’t know about. It’s your own little world and right now the Holy Spirit of God is bringing the sin to your heart, to your mind, and I want to encourage you to deal with it. Deal with it. Come clean. Get rid of it. Give the Lord the reins. Fortunately, we serve a God who specializes in rebuilding sin-shattered lives even lives shattered due to sexual sin.
It’s categorically impossible, ladies and gentlemen, categorically impossible, to have an authentic fellowship with God while involved in sexual sin. Impossible! Impossible! Isn’t it time you did things God’s way instead of snubbing at God and saying, “I’ll do it my way”.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Church
