The True Destination Of Sin
Sin has never led man in the right direction. Sin always takes one where he doesn’t need to go, allows him to stay longer than he needs to stay, and causes him to say and do things he ought not say and do. That’s just how sin is; it takes one in the wrong direction!
Furthermore, Rom. 6: 23 says “the wages of sin is death.” Sin is a profitless investment, ultimately leading only to LOSS! Sin’s only return is shame and ongoing moral deterioration. If you invest in sin, it will wreck your family, bring bad stuff to your relationships, and in the end, completely ruin your life. Furthermore, you can’t sow a little sin and reap a little sin. It always produces more than you sowed! But more than that, and this is the bottom line, this is where the rubber hits the road; “the wages of sin is death-ETERNAL DEATH! Sin will cause you to lose your soul. And when that time comes there won’t be any turning back. There won’t be any second chances. There will be no beginning again. There will be only EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION! That, my friend is where sin leads. It’s a long, downward path leading to a bad end.
But, and here’s the good part: the wages of sin is death, but to those who love and obey Him, God gives a free gift. While Rom. 6: 23 says, “For the wages of sin is death,” the rest of the verse says, “but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Thus, you can serve sin and receive sin’s wages-eternal death, or you can serve God and receive, not wages, but rather that which no man can earn, eternal life, which is God’s gift through Jesus Christ our Lord to those who serve Him. 2 Cor.9: 15 says: “Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.” It is your choice, my friend. Think on these things.
