8/22/14 Daily Devotion

James 1:15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

All of our issues, all of our sins, begin with our desires and/or thoughts. This is where we give the Devil a foothold; this is where we allow him a place to begin. From the desire, if we are not careful, if we do not fight its existence, we will bring forth the beginning of sin. After the sin begins to flourish, after it begins to grow, if it is not stopped, it will eventually lead to death, death and eternal separation from God. Now we know that everyone dies, with the only exception being those who will be alive when Christ returns to gather the church, but this is not death as we would automatically consider. This death can be described in many different ways, but let us consider that this death is what comes inside of us as we separate ourselves from God, this death is what comes when we refuse to walk the path of righteousness. Will you choose to die in your sins, or live for the King?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me always remain alive in You.
