Twenty Great Reasons to Stop Sinning

Consider these Biblically-based points before you decide to sin:


1. Sin breaks the heart of my Savior.


2. Jesus died to save me from sin.


3. I'll feel guilty and dirty if I do it.


4. This won't really satisfy me.


5. Once I'm done sinning, I'll wish I hadn't.


6. My disobedience to God will hurt other people that I love and care for.


7. It will hurt God's reputation.


8. I will come under the discipline of God.


9. It will rob me of my potential in life.


10. It will waste precious, God-given time.


11. Eventually, someone will find out.


12. God sees everything I do, say, and think.


13. It will keep me from fulfilling the purpose of my life.


14. I have more important things to do than to mess around with sin.


15. This sin will distract me from my spiritual focus.


16. It will rob me of heavenly rewards.


17. The devil wants me to disobey God.


18. There will be real consequences to this, some of which I don't even realize.


19. God will hold me accountable.


20. I really love God, so, why would I want to disobey Him?


Challenge: None of us are forced to sin - we have a choice. Make the choice to obey God's Word today, not temptation.
