An Equal Opportunity Destroyer

I’m Dr. Bob and for just a Mentoring Minute, I want to share with you something Rear Admiral Barry Black, the Chaplain of the United States Senate said. Listen carefully. He said, “Sin is an equal opportunity destroyer.” My wife Nancy has a simple saying about sin. She says, “Sin hates you.” Those are both as simple and truthful as it gets. Romans 7:24 (NKJV) says, “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” John 8:36 (NKJV) says, “He who the Son sets free is free indeed.”

Sin will take every opportunity to destroy you. The only remedy is to make Jesus Christ your Personal Savior. Then, you must become His follower on a daily basis. This means He is not only your Savior, but also your Lord. You will be required to exercise faith in Him and the direction He provides for your life every day. The principle is twofold. First, you will never be immune from sin unless you have been inoculated with faith in Christ… and, second, you must act accordingly. There is no other way to secure and retain victory over the sin that hates you. I’m Dr. Bob. Take this good news to heart. Let it define your life. Then, share it with someone else.
