Have you ever had a moment where you realize that you are involved in an activity that violates God’s Law and you are not sure what to do? Have you ever felt helpless or hopeless because you are not sure what to do. If so consider this thought
It is not falling into the water,
but lying in it, that drowns.
When I look at this I can’t help but think how it can help us when we fall into temptation and sin. This is a reminder that it is not the falling that creates loss, it is not doing anything about it or remaining in the water (sinful act). There is hope as long as you are willing to remove yourself from this situation. The important thing is to act before running out of time. The Bible clearly teaches us that it is not the falling into sin that costs us our eternal life, it is not rising up out of this sin and finding safety that costs us our eternal life.
God is offering you a way out, it is up to you to accept or take it.
May we ever recognize the possibility that we may fall, but if we seek to rise back up, God will provide and save.
