Sin Is A Disgrace
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Proverbs 14:34 NKJV
Remember the woman caught in the act of adultery? She was disgraced: imagine being caught in the very act, and then dragged out of the bedroom, probably naked or half naked; out of the house, into the streets, being seen by many, being jeered at by men and women alike, with stones in their hands; that's a disgrace, the height of humiliation.
You say it's because she was caught; yes, but whether you are caught or not, you must realize that sin is hurting you in so many ways than you can ever imagine - physically and spiritually! All may seem to be well, but I assure you, sir and ma, that all is not well; you are being ruined by the sins you keep committing!
Listen, there's no escape from the effects of sin except through genuine repentance! Which means that you must confess it and forsake it! You can't be a sharp guy in this; there's no sharp guy: Numbers 32:23 says that your sin will find you out! Another translation says it will track you down! What's a greater disgrace, than being told on that day, depart from me you worker of iniquity, for I know you not? Oh my God! It will never be our portion in Jesus name! Amen!
