Sin is easy to spot ... in others.  We're all great sin-sleuths when it comes to the mistakes and shortcomings in those around us, but what about the sin that resides in ME?  That's a much more difficult endeavor.

This world is scary.  There are so very many things to worry about that we can easily become enslaved to avoiding and protecting against our many fears.  But God lets us know that He designed us for something much more than fear or worry.  We were designed to trust Him - trust Him to be WHO He is and to have done WHAT He's done.  If we do that, fear becomes enslaved to HIM.

    What could be more American than ... consumerism?  We Thrive as a nation by producing, consuming, importing, exporting, and doing so more, and more, and more.  But is this the way God designed it to be?

    In 1981, a band called Black Flag recorded a song that carried these lyrics:  "Gimme, gimme, gimme - I need some more. Gimme, gimme, gimme - don't ask what for.  I know the world's got problems ...I've got problems of my own."  This song has been covered many times since, and it speaks to the heart of what we look at today, namely, that we can too easily be driven by a need to find our fulfillment in getting something more or in getting more of something.

    We were all designed by God to be a people who hunger and thirst for Him, to fulfill the grand purposes He drafted into the very fiber of our being.  However, this life can subtly draw us away from that passion and purpose, and we can begin to simply exist. Or worse, we can be so dulled to that grand design that we begin to build walls and borders around ourselves, silently and overtly declaring that only those who look like, act like, sound like ME are welcome into His kingdom.  Today, we tackle these sacred sins that seek to thrive in our lives.

    Comfort is, well, very COMFORTABLE, and we all like it.  On the surface, there is nothing intrinsically wrong with wanting to be comfortable, but we discover that it can quickly be a killer to our spiritual lives when we begin submitting to my desire for comfort rather than submitting to God.
