Day 19 Mediation Thought by: Elect lady Shelia Branch
Marks 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched
The hand is useful to the body, if at anytime it cause you to stumble. Sin or denied you from serving God , them it is important to get rid of it. Christ was merely using parts of the body to make an important point. He was showing that Christians should not tolerate sin . If an individual has a sinful habit, he should overcome it, even though the process may be as painful as the loss of an arm or leg. Christ is saying that it is far better to forsake a sinful pleasure than to lose salvation.
