“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do” (John 8:44).
Christ spoke these words to a religious crowd who thought they were good in God’s eyes. They were outwardly clean and religious but inwardly they were full of lust, sensuality, fornication, covetousness.
There is a sickness called sin-sickness that strikes the children of the devil. The deeper in sin a person falls, the more critical this sickness becomes. It reaches its peak when sin suddenly loses its pleasure, becoming boring and unfulfilling.
Sin-sickness drove a famous young TV star to suicide. The actor was starring in a hit series and making a fortune. He had just signed contracts to star in movies and was dating a beautiful actress. He had fame, fortune and good health.
But then his lifeless body was found in a cheap porno hotel. Apparently, none of the world’s pleasures had satisfied him. His life had become empty, meaningless, and suicide finally ended it all. He died as a result of sin-sickness!
If you have never given your life to Jesus, then up to now the devil has had complete control over you. He has ruled and reigned over your life. But perhaps now Satan sees a change coming over you and he knows he is losing his hold on you.
Sin has suddenly lost its sweet taste to you. You do not go to the evil places you once frequented and you are not as anxious to party anymore. Money no longer satisfies you, and neither do sex or possessions. You feel a growing emptiness inside you.
And now here you are, reading this message. Perhaps you have become willing to read the Bible. Nobody is making you do it; something inside is urging you to pick it up.
Dear one, right now Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart, and the devil knows it. And the one thing Satan fears most is that you will open the door to Christ!
