NO SIN IS LITTLE
Main Text: Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given unto them.
Lying, Cheating, Stealing, disobedience, fornication, Adultery, Envy, Jealousy etc are all sins. No one is bigger than the other. Most of the time, we regard telling lies as little one and fornication as a big sin.
But in reality, both of them carry equal measure of punishment, no matter how many times the sin was repeated.
Just as lying would need more lies to cover up the first one, so will those sins need more sin to cover up the initial ones. Hence as members of the body of Christ, emphasis is laid on avoiding every form and appearance of sin, no matter how innocent looking it may appear.
Another sin we should always try to avoid is doing those things that can make another person fall into sin. These come in various forms, one of which is dress code, lifestyle, circle of friends etc.
Every sin will receive equal punishment in the same measure it was meted out without penalty. Teachings on purgatory should as well be discouraged as there’s no such place as that. The Bible reminds us that, ‘it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this, the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
BE YOU PERFECT, AS GOD IS PERFECT
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me abstain from any form of sin, no matter how little it may appear in the eyes of men.
