Scripture says, “The goodness of God leads to repentance.” The Word is also clear that God hates evil not evildoers and that we are to love our enemies. So how effective is it to stand on the street corner and rebuke people? Loving someone to Christ takes more commitment than that. Proving God’s love comes from investing in someone’s life not shouting them down as they pass by.

As followers of God, sin no longer separates us from Him but clouds us from Him for the moment. We get to choose how long the moment is. We need to turn back to Him immediately not take our punishment into our own hands and prolong the cloudiness. This only causes us to feel more unloved which leads to more clouds.

“For this the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” There is no sin that we have to commit. With Jesus there is always a way out, it’s our choice. Are we going to choose self, what we think we want or need or are we going to choose God? The choice is usually much clearer than we like to believe.
