Sin always lies to us. It always hides the truth from us. It says, for example, to unmarried couple, “Even if you two are not married today, you will soon be. So, enjoy each other’s body today so that you will be happy.”
Yeah, no one can enjoy life while living in sin.
Sin always promises us pleasure but the pleasure that is found in sin is short lived. It disappears in a split second and throws us into guilt, despair and regret.
So, what should we do?
I think the best thing for us to do is this: We need to always strive to hold on to the promises of God because God’s promises are always “Yes” in Christ; means they are unchangeable, they stay true and they are pleasant for us all the time.
Listen: “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
But if we don’t know the promises of God, how can we hold on to them? We can’t.
Thus, making ourselves familiar with the word and promises of God is not an option but a critical and essential part of our lives. The psalmist said, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11) – If we have no word and promises of God in our hearts, by default, we fall for the deceitful promises of sin. ///
