ODORLESS POISON

 
 
Psalm 119:133


"Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me." ESV


Many believe today that quick and unexpected temptation or tragedy will sweep us away into the depths of sin without our being able to get control over it. The problem is, sin is always slow, creeping, tiny little steps that all seem just fine. There is no awareness that we are moving farther along the road to destruction, until we are stuck deep in it's ruts. Just like carbon monoxide, an odorless poison, can take our lives without any fanfare, sin works the same way. We are warned repeatedly in the Scriptures to be alert, watchful, and aware. Sin can get dominion over us in ways we are unaware if we do not keep watch.


Heavenly Father, we stand in need of Your grace so that our minds will be focused on You and Your repeated instruction for us to be alert and watchful. Give us more hunger for Your Word so that we will better recognize the odorless poison of sin and turn from it. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
