Do As You Please

Someone once said, "If I had my way in this world, I would have it so that all would be allowed to do as they please." That sounds ideal ... until someone is pleased to steal from you, or it pleases him to kill another human being. The problem is that sin dwells in our hearts and while it promises pleasure, it's in truth "the ultimate partypooper." Sin is the undetected poison hidden in a delicious meal. Paul spoke of sin deceiving him and bringing about his death. John Bunyan (author of Pilgrim's Progress) said, "The man who does not know the nature of the Law, cannot know the nature of sin." And Martin Luther added, "The first duty of the Gospel preacher is to declare God's Law and show the nature of sin." So, take courage, and take the Law and use it to show sinners the true and deceiving nature of sin. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
