Afterward, Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” John 5: 14 Holy Bible Amplified Version
It is not a snowball but a fiery rock that keeps on enlarging itself. Just as a snowball gets bigger and bigger as it rolls down a hill until it is a destructive force so too it unrepentant sin in our lives. It starts our small but if not eliminated quickly it metamorphoses ever bigger in a destructive force in our lives. It will destroy us like a fiery rock smashing into a ball of dry hay.
Jesus says that when He delivers us from an addiction we must never go back. If we do not only will its grip on us become stronger but it will also lead to other destructive addictions which will quickly totally destroy our lives. Look at most addictions. They start out small but they slowly enslave us and lead to other devastating addictions.
Having done volunteer work with recovering addicts I have heard this story repeated again and again.
Destruction of lives comes in small choices which diminishes cognitive thought which leads to bigger and more destructive choices until the soul is totally vanquished into a living Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with the strength when I am obedient unto You to vanquish my destructive addictions. I praise You in the name of He who conquered sin on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen. May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
