My Recent Brush with Death…or should I say Brushes?
Was supposed to cover this topic yesterday, but got distracted by the green holiday…
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
To be separated from God is to be dead. If the wages of sin is death, then to sin means you are separated from God. I sin several times a day, but when I do I repent. Therefore, I have several brushes with death every day. It’s a good thing that God is forgiving; kinda like a big defibrillator…
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
