Gaining Weight

It’s hard to believe: I’ve gained 200 pounds. Well, it didn’t happen over night. At birth I weighed nine pounds. Today, I’m tipping the scales at 209. Who would have thought that only 71,000 meals would do that. A lifetime of eating can really effect the body.

Likewise a lifetime of sinning, doing our own thing, feeding our desires will have drastic effects on our life. One day you wake up (hopefully) and ask, “How did I get this way?” I pray that when that happens, you will realize that our only salvation is Jesus.

Galatians 6:8, NIV
“The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature* will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
