My mother in law, who is a very fine woman has a tumor and it’s cancerous. She’s been taking radiation treatments which has caused her hair to fall out, but the tumor has been shrunk! Following her treatments the doctor will be cutting the tumor out unless God takes care of it beforehand!
She welcomes this surgery, because she knows that if the tumor stays in her body it may kill her. Sin, in the life of a Christian is just as deadly! Sin is like a cancer, and can spread throughout our heart, soul, and mind!
Unforgiveness, Kills! Hatred, Kills! Bitterness, Kills! Envy, Kills! Coveting, Kills! Jealousy, Kills! Offending Someone, Kills! And the list goes on and on! The Great Physician wants to perform surgery on you today. He wants to cut that tumor called sin, out of your life, but it’s your choice, you’ve got to give Him the OK!
No one in their right mind would keep a doctor from cutting a cancerous tumor out of their bodies, but we, yes we will not allow God to do the same for us!
I John 1:9 is one of my favorite verses found in scripture. It says, “If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness!”
The key word in that verse is “If!” If we confess it! If we trust Him to do it! If, If, If! When you decide to allow God to cut the sin out of your life, He’ll do it! There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it!FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailShare
