Have you ever built a wall? I know, that sounds funny coming from me, but the truth is walls are built daily in the world. Now I am not talking about a material wall but a wall that separates us from God, family, friends, and the like. So often these walls are built so gradual that we don’t even realize they are being built until they are so high that they have blocked out everything that is good.
The biggest culprit for the walls in our lives is sin. Sin is the determining factor that creates and sustains the walls in our lives. I am reminded of a verse that says, in Greg’s Paraphrase, satan (little s) comes to steal, kill, and destroy our lives. His sole purpose is to keep people from accepting Christ and he does that by stealing our joy, killing our testimony, and detroying our lives and might I add he does a great job at it too!! If he can make us sin and forget about what we are to do for God then he is keeping people from accepting Christ. Some more of the material that satan uses are:
just to name a few, I am sure that you can think of a few more if you tried. Here is a secret, if you are feeling these kinds of things, IT IS NOT FROM GOD!! Remember God does not and will not make you sin! God will give you a way of escape from sin, but you have to want to escape first! Am I saying that I like sin? Well, yes because that is the human nature, that why there is a way of escape because we like sin! Think before you judge me, we all sin daily whether we tell a lie or worse it happens in our lives. So daily we need to learn to break down that wall that SIN tries to build in our lives. Here’s a verse to put in your memory Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God”
