Satan rejoices when believers rest in a false sense of security that all is well, that all their sins have been dealt with once and for all at the point of conversion – that they can therefore afford to banish sin consciousness in their lives. This condition reminds me of the frog which finds great delight sitting in a basin of warm water. Finally, when water temperature reaches boiling point, it is too late to jump out of the water.
- Confess our sins.
- Harden our heart.
- Believe that our past, present and future sins have already been forgiven, that the ‘sin issue’ is all behind us so we need not be sin conscious anymore. No need to do anything.
If one’s conscience is seared, it no longer is sensitive to the conviction of the Holy Spirit in the event one sins. Therefore one will be lulled into this ‘false sense of security’, thinking one is spiritually well when in fact one is damned.
