Snare of Sin
“The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them; the cords of their sins hold them fast.” Proverbs 5:22 (NIV)
The effects of sinfulness are not always obvious immediately and that is its ultimate snare. Sinning becomes a habit that grows stronger and bolder until it eventually manifests itself out in the open unashamed. You can’t hide sin or suppress its guilt for too long, but you can replace it with repentance and forgiveness at the foot of Calvary.
Unless an unwanted sinful habit is halted by a traumatic event, it can only be replaced by a habit of faith that involves strengthening your relationship with the Lord. Meditate on the promises of God’s Word and dwell on His grace.
Let’s pray today that we may seek forgiveness for every sin in our life at Calvary’s cross.
