Perhaps the only state worse than doing wrong is being wrong.
We need to guard against becoming comfortable with a lifestyle that is contrary to God’s will and way. This is what the Bible calls “sin.”
Oswald Chambers eloquently describes the peril of a conscience that is no longer troubled by wrong-doing: “One of the penalties of sin is our acceptance of it. It is not only God who punishes for sin, but sin establishes itself in the sinner and takes its toll. No struggling or praying will enable you to stop doing certain things, and the penalty of sin is that you gradually get used to it, until you finally come to the place where you no longer even realize that it is sin.”
Stay close to God through prayer, obedience, and the study of the holy scriptures, and you will have a heart that is sensitive to what pleases God — and to what does not please God. This is the surest and the straightest path to life, peace, and joy. – Luther
