“It’s just a small sin… it’s no big deal!” We are so quick to convince ourselves that God is willing to tolerate our sin, as long as we are still going to church, giving some money, and doing religious things. But even the smallest amount of known sin in our lives contaminates our entire relationship with God, just as a small amount of poison contaminates an entire glass of water. Are there areas of disobedience in your life that you have been tolerating? Bring them to God today!
Imagine if someone gave you a very costly gift, but you put it aside and never opened it. You would never do that, and yet there are people who have been saved for years, but they have never opened their spiritual gifts. The Bible warns us not to neglect our spiritual gifts because it is impossible to follow Christ without the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Have you ever learned what your spiritual gifts are?
