“Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.” (1 John 3:4 NKJV)
Sin is an outlaw.
It has a notorious reputation.
Sin is a disturber of the peace, a home-wrecker, and a con artist.
Sin can have its charm, though, and it can be sneaky.
It can show you the fun and blind you to the cost.
Sin is the kind of “friend” that no one needs to keep company with.
Sin draws your attention with intrigue and mystery until it suddenly destroys your joy, peace, relationship, or you.
Sin ruins things. It acts like strong bleach on your favorite colored shirt. It promises delights and then reneges or delivers just enough to keep you coming back for more.
Sin is a wrecking ball, powerfully tearing things down. It tears down character, relationships, support systems, and values.
Sin is a villain, a con artist that draws us in with subtlety and allurements. One that knows how to direct our attention to the promise of what we desire to gain, while it tears from us what we don’t want to lose.
Sin allures us with the hope of delight, but it delivers damage and destruction.
Sin is a destroyer, a swindler, a thief, and a cheat.
