If It’s Wrong, Don’t Do It!

Temptation. It’s everywhere, like a seductive harlot behind every eye, every thought, every motive, every desire of every heart. We know it’s wrong but we do it anyway. We spend more than we have, eat more than we should, say and do things we shouldn’t. And it all seems so harmless until one day we realize our lives are a shattered mess of guilt and shame and regret.

How do we survive in a world where morals and common sense seem to have packed up and left us to do as we please when we please to whom we please without paying a mighty price? Where do we turn for help? Who will teach us how to live wholesome, productive lives? Who will teach our children, our grandchildren, our great-grandchildren?

I will. Because I still believe in God and His Word. I still believe in right and wrong. I still believe that regardless of what the world shoves in my face and screams in my ears, I can say no. I can walk away. I can do what’s right.

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will provide a way out so you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to describe myself to you, and these are the words jumping up and down in my heart: I'm just a simple human being living in a complicated, messed-up world. I speak my mind. I love hard. My feelings run deep. When push comes to shove, I stand my ground. Sometimes I push back. Sometimes I walk away. I've surfed the crashing waves of life that threatened to destroy me only to make me stronger. I bear the scars of emotional rape, sadness, and depression. I've walked the golden streets of churches and religion only to be disappointed time and time again. And as a result, it's taken me seventy-five years to get where I'm sitting today; a sinner saved by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. I fell at the cross. I repented of my sins, and Jesus saved and washed me clean. I still fall flat on my face. I still get dirty as a pig in a mudhole. And Jesus still picks me up, dries my tears, forgives me again and again, and continues walking close beside me. No one has ever loved me like that. And no one ever will.
