Yesterday my family and I watched church from home. The pastor stated that we need to be a sin hunter...to not befriend sin, but rather get rid of it.
As a football coach we often say, "hit or get hit." You'd better be on the lookout for someone to hit, or someone else will find you and hit you first, unannounced / even if you're not ready for it. Reminds me of 1 Peter 5:8.
So let's think this way in the Christian journey..."hunt, or get hunted."
Romans 8:12-14 (NIV)
12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay. –” Quote by Ravi Zacharias
