Don’t Cheat!

Recently, I was counseling someone who is on a diet. Seeing that they were struggling, I said, “If you have to cheat a time or two to keep yourself on track, that is better than quitting.”

That might be good advice for the physical world but terrible advice for the spiritual world. Paul said in Romans chapter thirteen, “And making no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof.” There are no cheat days in the Christian life when we can openly sin and get away with it.

In this day may we make no sinful provision for our flesh but rather crucify the desires of the flesh that we might please our blessed Lord.
