Just Keep Looking Over Your Shoulder
JULY 28, 2021
KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
Most of us who are old enough to drive are familiar with the feeling we get when driving down the highway, not paying attention to our speed, and then we see a police car pass us on the other side of the interstate. Immediately we check our speedometer to see if we are going over the speed limit. If so, our next glance is in the rear-view mirror to see if the police car has turned around and is now coming to get us. However, you realize that you have gone too far to be able to see. So, for the next 5 miles or so you keep glancing back, just to see if they were coming. After a while, you finally relax realizing there has been no one following you after all.
That is one example of what it is like to live a sinful life. Always wondering, “am I going to be caught?” Looking over your shoulder to see who is watching or who may have heard what you said. Always wondering if the lie you told yesterday is going to catch up with you today. Always running, and never being able to get away from the constant uneasy guilt. Knowing in your heart, one day it will all catch up with you.
Even if the world never catches you, God is always watching and sees every sin. Romans 6:23 says, “the wages of sin is death.”
Death comes to every person eventually. In Heb 9:27 it says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” On that day, it will be one day too late. On that day the wages of sin are more than just physical death, it will be eternal death. An eternal separation from God.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
Oh, how wonderful and freeing it is to know, that when I took my sin to the cross of Calvary, Jesus paid the price for them all. They are all washed away. No more looking over my shoulder, no more wondering about my life. The life I live, I now live for Him.
