Have Your Daily Dose of The Word

by Jeri Johnson

The cold and flu season is upon us. The Covid-19 virus and its variants are still

a matter of concern. Even when we eat right, get enough rest, vaccinate, and fill

up with vitamins, those germs can still invade our systems and wreck havoc in

our bodies. Some people have visible symptoms like a runny nose, cough, or

sneezing. Others’ symptoms are not as obvious, like a sore throat, fever or stuffy

head. But these people are still in need of medication.

Sin is similar to this. Scripture tells us that all have sinned and fallen short of the

glory of God (Romans 3:23). Furthermore, if we say we have no sin, we decide

ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8). But some think that God is only

concerned with “big” sin such as abortion or homosexuality. This is not true.

Paul says that neither thieves, nor drunkards, nor covetous, nor revilers would

inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:10). James warns us about what

comes out of our mouths explaining that the tongue defiles the whole body and

is set on fire by hell (James 3:6). And John says that those who love and practice

a lie will not have right to the tree of life just like the sexually immoral and

murderers (Revelation 22:14-15).

When we emphasize some sins above others, we not only give a distorted view

of the Gospel, but we also give some people a feeling that they are safe from

judgement. Just as all cold and flu suffers are in need of medication, all sinners

are in need of a Savior - Jesus Christ. So let us daily set aside time to commune

with God and take our dose of the written Word hoping that each day will find us

better than the day before while realizing that we will not be completely germ-free

until that day we stand before God when Christ presents us without blemish

before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy (Jude 24).

Praise God!
