CROUCHING SIN

Genesis 4:7 "If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.

"Proverbs 5:18-23
Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth.
As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love. For why should you, my son, be exhilarated with an adulteress and embrace the bosom of a foreigner? For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He watches all his paths. His own iniquities will capture the wicked, and he will be held with the cords of his sin. He will die for lack of instruction, and in the greatness of his folly he will go astray.

The popularity of adultery, fornication and deviant sexual sins has almost matched the time of the Roman Empire and that of Sodom and Gomorrah.

For the unsaved it just compounds and adds to the difficulty in finding their way to Christ. The desire for emotional and sexual fulfillment is stimulated by both natural and artificial means found in books, magazines, movies, television, and now on the Internet plus the brag- a-dociousness of peers.

The picture in Genesis 4:7 is you and I standing at the door of decision when opened you and I are going to be overpowered by the force of sin. Once the door is opened we have already sinned in our heart even before any act is consummated. Whoa !!  Bolt that door shut !!

The Christian has no excuse for committing these sins for; one the scriptures forbid it, two the Holy Spirit convicts you at the point of considering it, and three you know it is wrong.

One scripture that should ever be you mind is; John 14:17 That is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be IN you.

As a Christian the Spirit of GOD is “in” you. No matter what the sin may be HE is a party to it. If you fornicate - - HE is in you while you fornicate.

To me this is a scary thought and yet many Christians ignore this fact and proceed to do what they know is wrong. Don’t lose this thought; if I sin the Holy Spirit is in me as I do it whether it is lying, cheating, stealing or any other sin.

Rob Harbison preached a workman like sermon on fornication for those interested. Http://www.sermoncentral.com/sermons/moral-issues-fornication-rob-harbison-sermon-on-adultery-36096.asp
