“Sinning on purpose brings troubles” Pastor Gerard Smith
On Sunday 2 June 2019, Nyamirambo Assemblies of God was blessed to have Pastor Gerard Smith who told the Church to never sin on purpose for it is poisonous. He said that Christians might make mistakes but they are not allowed to sin on purpose.
He went on saying that that God doesn’t us expect us to be perfect but He expects us to differentiate sins and mistakes.
“God is okay with our mistakes but not with our sins. The license given to us doesn’t guarantee us to sin purposively. Once you’re granted a driving license, there is a specific way you have to use while you’re driving. If we don’t guide our faith, driving it in wrong ways (sinning), it won’t only hurt us but also those around us.” Added Pastor Smith.
What is sin ? “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” James 4:17.
Some of sin’s consequences mentioned by the Pastor, are that sin destroys one’s life, family and other people around.
According to Pastor Gerard, something that Christians should be cautious about, it is that the World is watching them, questioning whether their faith is real, firm from Monday to Sunday.
Pastor Gerard added that this World where people can know how to speak Christianity but can’t live Christianity, every believer should be asking him/herself the following questions “Are the things that I am doing ; looking at ; pursuing, honor God ?”
In his conclusion, he mentioned two things to learn :
1. How you live your life can send somebody to Hell : As they are watching the way you live and don’t see any difference with them, they may reject Jesus.
2. How you live your life can send you to Hell : “So, because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold, I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16. Commenting on this, Pastor Smith emphasized that sinning on purpose is a deadly thing for Christians and called upon everyone to take a radical decision of sinning no more.
