Why do people run away from God’s loving protective arms to dangerous, risky life choices, all in the name of personal freedom. It’s irrational but I’ve done it and maybe you have too. Often I made the choice and then asked God to bless it. That’s not how it works, folks. Jesus lived and died and was resurrected for all humanity to erase sin from our lives and give us life eternal. In light of God’s merciful grace, sin is irrational. We can blame hormones or circumstances or other people’s actions, but, when it comes right down to it, it is us who are to blame. (The devil made me do it might be an excuse in very rare cases, but most of the time it is us.) Thank you, Lord, for your merciful forgiveness and may the day come soon when we say and totally mean your will be done, and sin is no more.
