Which is easier to make, the right choice or the wrong choice? It is as easy to make a right choice as it is to make a wrong one. The consequences, on the other hand, of a wrong choice can devastate you for life. So why not just make the right choice. Here is an interesting thing, most people know what that right choice is, they just don’t do it.

R.C. Sproul

We want to be saved from our misery, but not from our sin. We want to sin without misery, just as the prodigal son wanted inheritance without the father. The foremost spiritual law of the physical universe is that this hope can never be realized. Sin always accompanies misery. There is no victimless crime, and all creation is subject to decay because of humanity’s rebellion from God.

When our lives are not aligned with the teaching of Scripture and the transforming work of God’s Spirit—when we’re resisting His wise, loving instruction concerning our lifestyle and attitudes—our prayer closets start to feel like soundproof rooms. Our spiritual armor becomes little more than the plastic, painted stuff they sell as a kit in the toy section of the Christian bookstore. The energy we expect our prayers to access and generate is momentarily choked off and shorted out. We’ve compromised the system. We’ve created a bottleneck. We’re leaking oil, leaking power.

Timothy Keller

Every one of our sinful actions has a suicidal power on the faculties that put that action forth. When you sin with the mind, that sin shrivels the rationality. When you sin with the heart or the emotions, that sin shrivels the emotions. When you sin with the will, that sin destroys and dissolves your willpower and your self-control. Sin is the suicidal action of the self against itself. Sin destroys freedom because sin is an enslaving power.
