“And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. Better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’”
Jesus certainly paints for us a picture of the heinousness of sin here.
Sit with this reality.
What will help you turn away from one of your sinful tendencies?
Heritage word—“If we believe the words of Colossians 3:11, ‘Christ is all and Christ is in all,’ then we must admit that He is in members of ISIS, and in the last person to have hurt us deeply. Moreover, these very persons are in us.”
