Do You Enjoy Sinning?

“And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.” Isaiah 1:28–29 (KJV)

Sin is very deceptive. Its appearance is attractive, which is why many people find it irresistible. It appears to be palatable, so the perpetrators keep enjoying it and become addicted to it. However, it leads its victim or perpetrators to destruction and shame.

 The Amplified Bible brings out the clarity of the opening scripture; it says, “But rebels and sinners will be crushed and destroyed together, And those who abandon (turn away from) the Lord will be consumed (perish).

For you will be ashamed [of the degradation] of the oaks in which you took [idolatrous] pleasure, And you will be ashamed of the gardens [of passion] which you have chosen [for pagan worship].” Dear beloved, if you are born again, you are the light of the world; therefore, shun evil and do good.

 Look unto Jesus Christ, learn from Him in the Holy Scriptures, and live a righteous life, and blessings, peace, and glory will be your portion.
