Escape the Horror! Mentoring Moments, the 1 min blog
Have you seen the movie “Little shop of horrors?” It’s about a man who finds a cute little plant on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, when the plant got hungry, the only thing that would satisfy it was blood. At first the man fed it by pricking his fingers. Then, sure that thing would literally bleed him dry, he began to feed it people, but only the most wicked people. Eventually, the plant planned to devour everyone it came in contact with. After all, isn’t there a little wickedness in all of us?
That plant reminds me of the law of sin and death. For every sin there must a punishment. To make matters worse, sin is never satisfied, because try as we may to stop, we keep sinning against the law. Thank God for His covenant of Grace! The blood of Jesus satisfied the law of sin and justified all of us.
Through Jesus we escape the horror of punishment and enter the Kingdom of light! It almost seems too good to be true. But rest assured this is no fairy tale. Live free!
Success and Progress!
