Something Deadly by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/09/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In October of 2003, a raging fire devastated massive portions of southern California destroying more than 3,000 homes and claiming twenty-two lives.

Ken Hale was one of the heroic firefighters working to control the fire. He said, “As soon as I had found out people had died, it changed my entire outlook on the fire. It became something very deadly, a monster.”

Some of us need that kind of change in perspective regarding sin. We’ve all seen how sins like adultery can destroy a life. But sins that we consider “small” can be deadly, too. Our hearts for God can be destroyed when the fires of jealousy, anger, self-pity, worry, or gluttony go unchecked.

The book of James says, “After desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

Are any sparks of sin threatening to engulf your life?

  • “Sin is more dangerous than wild bears, more deadly than blazing forest fires. Ask Nebuchadnezzar, who lost his mind because he refused to deal with his pride. Ask Samson, who was reduced to a pathetic shred of a man because he never got control over the lusts of his flesh. Ask Achan and Ananias and Sapphira, who all lost their lives over “small,” secret sins.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
