Killing the Snake
“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John 2:1-2
The headline caught my attention! “Tail Was Short. Snake Was Not.” I read the entire article. It seems there was a lady in South Africa who passed a haystack one day and saw the tail of a snake.
She took a stick to kill it, and before she knew it she was wrestling with a 17-foot python! Thankfully, a man quickly came along to kill the snake with a fence post; otherwise it would have crushed her to death.
You may think your sin is just a little sin, but I want to tell you that it is part of the same snake. Sin murdered Jesus, and sin will crush you. Your only hope is salvation through Jesus Christ.
Realize it: you may think that “little tail” is really nothing…but before you know it, that sin can grip and kill you. Take death to it now—before it takes you.
