Fer It or Agin’ It

SIN“The visiting pastor had an eloquent message about sin this morning. He even told a few humorous stories,” the long-time church member observed. “The trouble is: I couldn’t tell if he was fer it or agin’ it (for sin or against sin.)”

When Jesus spoke about sin, you could always tell that He was against it. In these times of “political correctness” we must always be clear where God stands. Since we are His ambassadors, we must always be sure that others know where we stand by what we say and how we stand.

Hebrews 12:4 (NIV)
“In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.”
