A Swirling Vortex of Sin


“Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived”  (2 Timothy 3:12-13).

It’s not just Hollywood. It’s our neighbors and friends who seem to be caught up in this vortex of sin. Picture a great swirling whirlpool in the middle of an ocean. Christians cling to anything that will keep them from being sucked down. Meanwhile, others are drowning in sin.

There is a single solution to this problem: Jesus Christ.

“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost” (1 Timothy 1:15). “…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Let’s not ignore the drowning neighbors. Cast them the line that saves them from eternal death. Tell them of Jesus!
