Stop! Look! Listen!

There is a back way to our local mall that takes us over a set of railroad tracks. The railroad tracks are not gated nor do they have the flashing signal lights. What they do have is a simple stop sign that most drivers ignore. It is a little understandable because in the hundreds of time I have traveled this route I had never seen a train on these tracks – until yesterday. Much to the annoyance of the driver behind me I had stopped for the stop sign when the whistle and rumble of a massive locomotive appeared out of nowhere and shook me to the bone. Trains do run on that track!

Such is the case often with many people that engage in potentially deathly sinful practices.  Because they appear to have escaped the consequence of their sin, they continue ignoring God and his word.  Unfortunately trains to run on that track and the consequences are can be fatal. Even if a person manages to avoid the consequences of his or her sin, there still remains the judgment.  

Beware! Heed the warning and obey the word of God.

 …and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23)

So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. (Romans 14:12 )
