Matthew 5:29-30

If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
(NIV)


Drastic measures are needed.

Just consider the numbers upon numbers of people that are struggling with different sins, that are unwilling to gouge and cut and throw away. We are more concerned with having something that is "ours" than we are concerned with the God who created us.

Consider today what needs to be gone from your life. Is it the internet? Oh, but we can't live without that! Is it the television? No way, what would we do?!? A friendship, a place, what is it?
