[b]One sin lived in and indulged[/b](Thomas Brooks, "Touchstone of Sincerity")Satan knows that one sin lived in and indulged, will as certainly damn a man as many sins; as one disease, one ulcerous part, may as certainly kill a man as many diseases. O sirs! remember that as one hole in a ship will sink it; and as one stab at the heart will kill a man; and as one glass of poison will poison a man--so one sin lived in and indulged will damn a man forever. One wound strikes Goliath dead, as well as 23 did Caesar; one Delilah will do Samson as much mischief as all the Philistines; one vein's bleeding will let out all the vitals; one bitter herb will spoil all the pottage. One Achan was a trouble to all Israel; one Jonah was too heavy for a whole ship; so one sin lived in and indulged, is enough to make a man miserable forever. One millstone will sink a man to the bottom of the sea as well as a hundred; so one sin lived in and indulged will sink a man to the bottom of hell aswell as a hundred.

No doubt one sin is one sin too many. The sin which so easily ensnares, or besets.Somehow we seem to make a pet of a sin, don't want to get rid of it. It pleases us more than God pleases us.God can give us the strength, as we seek Him, to conquer that or any sin that would destroy us.Let's seek Him, we need to. God bless.
