Anyone who goes into the house while it is closed up will be unclean till evening. Leviticus 14:46
Anytime that a place has some dangerous chemicals in it or something else that is dangerous, most people are unwilling to go near it. They do not want to be in any area that is dangerous to their health.
However, there are many people who will go in anyways because they do not see the danger directly. They feel that they will be ok because there are no immediate signs of danger and their health appears to still be good.
God told the people that while a house is shut up to be cleansed of any mold, if anyone goes in, he will be unclean until evening.
In this world there are many dangers that do not show up on the surface. They may take years before the danger shows up in the life of a person. Diseases and sicknesses often appear as nothing at first, until they take over the body.
Sin works in the same way as many diseases and molds in this life. It does not appear to be dangerous, and one can do it often without any immediate harm.
People are quick to walk into places of sin and defilement and think that they are safe. Temptations rise and grab at their heart and mind. Very few will flee the temptations and free themselves from the sin. Giving into the temptations, they are defiled.
Believers must be willing to stay away from places of temptation to sin. Keeping their mind and body in places where God is lifted up will keep them from being infected with sin. Focusing one’s life upon God and His word, will keep one from slipping into sin when around places of sin in this world.
Every day you will go to various places. Some of those places you will have a choice as to whether you go there or not, and other places you must go without options.
Do not allow yourself to step into places that will be quick to lead you into sin or away from God. Keep yourself from being defiled with sin and death.
Stay in Christ where there is forgiveness and life. Bring Christ into wherever you go that others may know the forgiveness and life He brings. Seek God’s direction on where to go or not to go in this life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will strengthen you to flee all temptation and sin; that you will repent of any sins and seek God’s forgiveness in Jesus; and that you will not allow yourself to be defiled with sin.
