Sin that Entangles Us

Posted by Guy J. Green on Friday, February 7, 2014
Hebrews12:1....Therefore,since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumrance, and the sinwhich so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that set before us.....

Sin stealthily and rentlessly entangles our lives.  We will never be able to run the race marked out for our us as long as we are entrapped in sin. We can only escape sin's bondage only if we can recognize it for what it is.  We can call sin a "mistake", "bad habit", or a "weakness", but the reality of it all it still a sin.  Sin can blind us from it presence in many shapes and forms, we need to prevent it from it subtly and pervasively rob us of our spiritual power and victory that could be ours.  The good news is that there is no extent to which sin can entangle us that God's grace does not abound still more to free us. (Rom: 5:20)

Ask yourself these questions to enable you to see the scope of your life.  First, has sin robbed your joy? Has it prevented you from being the best husband, son, friend, or man of God you could be?  Is it keeping you from spiritual maturity?  If you have become entangled with sin, God can release you immediately, no matter how desperately entangled you may have become! "Let God, have His way"
