Job 33     (April 8)


            “I sinned…and it did not profit me.”

            If falling into temptation and sinning is as good as people say it is, then why all the people that sin are so unhappy? If the wicked pleasures of this world could truly satisfy, why is this world filled with sadness, anxiety, depression and all sorts of wars.

            Oh no, the pleasure seekers will never admit that their lives are full of anxiety and unhappiness. They will never confess out in the open, that their sins have no advantages or benefits whatsoever in the long run.

            They lie, yes; they lie every time they affirm that they are happy without Christ. To sin is somewhat pleasant, but that “pleasure” is demonic and it lasts for such a short period of time, that it cannot calm the thirst in our souls.

            There is no profit in sinning; there is nothing to gain in a moment of pleasure outside of God’s will. Do not allow the enemy to deceive you into thinking, that sin has no negative repercussions.

            It is better to suffer alongside Christ and reign with him in heaven, than to live in sin and without him— now and for all eternity. A moment of sinful pleasure can ruin your life forever. This is what happened to King David. Bathsheba’s kisses were sweet, but sin always has a bitter and putrid aftertaste.

            The next time you face temptation, remember these words: Sin has no profit, blessings or life for you—only death. Better yet, listen to what the Word of God has to say about it,

           “Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.” (James 1:15)
