We are now living in a world that sin is being made fashionable. People don’t call it sin again but have found a way to make it presentable. It does not matter how much human beings make sin acceptable, it is still sin and God's judgement over it stands except you repent. God told me sometimes ago to warn the church that you should not let the devil make his things look innocent to you and the things of God look stupid. You must not join those that make light of sin and sinful acts in the name of civilization. You can be holy and still be civilized. Sin is not civilization but perversion and you must see it the way God sees it and respond to it the way God will respond to it. God hates sin! (Psa. 5:5)
There are three stages to committing sin:
Tolerance: This is a situation of neutrality towards sin. There are people that are not committing a particular sin but they are indifferent to those committing it in their vicinity. They are so non- challant and are not willing to do anything about it. That position is against the divine mandate to go into the entire world and preach the gospel and make disciples of nations (Matt. 28:18-20). You cannot say it does not concern you. If you are truly born again, it concerns you. God has an expectation over you in that regards because God excepts that you will do something about it as God’s ambassador to your world (2 Cor. 5:20). Don’t say they will not hear if I tell them, go ahead and tell them first, that is your responsibility. It is even worse if the so called sinner is under your personal influence or depending on you. Can God trust you as he did for Abraham in Gen. 18:19?
Enjoyment: At this stage, the man has moved from tolerance to passively enjoying the sin. Though he doesn’t drink but he keeps the company of alcoholics and sits with them; enjoying the company of the ungodly (Psa. 1:1) even though he does not join them in the real act. Stop hanging around sinners under any guise. You should know that you are washed and purchased by the blood of Jesus; sinners must not be comfortable in your company. I am not preaching the doctrine of segregation to you, but you must not blend with them. Your contact should make kingdom impact on them, God said you are the salt of the world and salt changes taste and preserves things.
Participation: At this stage you have fully backslidden. Don’t join sinners to commit sin under any guise or excuse. You must make commitment to stay pure on a daily basis. Watch the association you keep and the influences around you. Take position on God’s side ahead of any temptation and it shall be well with you in Jesus’ name.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to thirst after righteousness, holiness and purity and to deal with sin the way you want me to in Jesus’ name. Amen.
