"Adversity Pursues Sinners"

From the Montana Street bulletin, comes the following article written by Caleb Cunningham, a member of the Sunset congregation in Carlsbad, New Mexico:

Can someone live in sin without consequences? Not according to God’s word (Romans 6:23; cf. 2 Samuel 12:1-23). Yet when people dabble in sin and seemingly get away with it, they gain a false sense of security. But if we choose to linger in sin, we can be sure that there will be consequences.

Proverbs 13:21 NASB tells us that “adversity pursues sinners.” If you want a life of problems, a life of chaos and constant stress, then live in sin. You see, God’s world is designed in such a way to make it difficult for the one who persists in sinful living. “The way of the transgressor is hard” (Proverbs 13:15 KJV). God will not make it easy for us to neglect His rule. In fact, God even promises that “Many are the sorrows of the wicked” (Psalm 32:10 NASB).

See what wickedness is here.
