Its Better to Sin than do Nothing!
Yesterday as I was pondering things I began to think about the Lord’s will and my or our desire to walk in it. Sometimes I have seen where a person can have so much fear of missing God’s will or not doing it the right way that they end up doing nothing. I have seen many people seek the perfect way to do church and end up never meeting with saints at all. So I thought to myself that it would be better to do anything than to do nothing. In other words it would be better to sin (do the wrong thing) as it were than to stay in a state of lukewarmness. Lukewarness is neither right or wrong it is simply doing NOTHING!
1. The best is to find and do God’s will
2. The second best is to go the wrong way (correction can happen here)
3. The worst is to allow fear or ignorance to cause you do nothing at all.
When I have done nothing I learn nothing. When I follow God’s will or do the opposite in both cases I have learned valuable lessons.
This is why then I say (tongue in cheek)
IT IS BETTER TO SIN THAN DO NOTHING!
Rev.3:15‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.
