Sometimes a preacher goes from preachin’ to meddlin’, and we don’t like it…not one bit! Toes are stepped on, egos are bruised, feathers are ruffled. But if we are believers, and the preacher is preaching God’s word…it’s really God that is stepping, bruising, ruffling. God himself, through his word, is the one meddlin’.
And are we to refuse our God? After all, it is his great love for us that has him meddling in our lives. It is his great love for us that desires us not to pursue sin. His great love does not leave us alone, but he pursues us relentlessly. Sin is so bad for us it can even make us sick! Is God causing the sickness? Of course not! We are (after all, without sin, there would be no death for us.) Brothers and sisters, if we love one another, pursue clean, free, joyful relationships with one another, and so not pursue that things that are tempting but will destroy us.
