In Romans 7:13 says, Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
It talks about people being torn between one way and another, but what really got my attention as I was reading it is when it said “Sin simply did what sin is so famous for doing, using the good as a cover to tempt me to do what would finally destroy me. Now in the NIV bible it’s says “Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! But in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it produced death in me through what was good, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful.
How often we fall prey to sin, how often does sin dress itself up to trick us, and then once we have tasted it, it leaves us right where we are, alone. This verse really had me thinking about the sin I have done and all the wasted time I spent doing it, and what about how sin destroys us, we know the enemy is here to do three things, kill, steal and destroy, so why aren’t we one step ahead of him? The more we stay in the word we will see what is right and what is wrong..AMEN.
