Devotional for Sunday Jan 20, 2013:
A World Without Sin
Then wolves will live
in peace with lambs, and leopards
will lie down to rest with goats.
Can you imagine a world minus sin? Have you done anything recently because of sin?
At the very least, you've complained. You've worried. You've grumbled. You've hoarded when you should have shared. You've turned away when you should have helped....
Because of sin, you've snapped at the ones you love and argued with the ones you cherish. You have felt ashamed, guilty, bitter.
Sin has sired a thousand heartaches and broken a million promises. Your addiction can be traced back to sin. Your mistrust can be traced back to sin. Bigotry, robbery, adultery - all because of sin. But in heaven, all of this will end.
Can you imagine a world without sin? If so, you can imagine heaven.
