I know a number of people who are allergic to cats.  Whenever they get near a cat or where a cat has been their eyes water and they start to sneeze.  They don’t even need to see the cat.  All they need to do is enter a house where a cat either lives or has visited.  It’s like an early warning system to let them know a cat is in the vicinity.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have a similar warning system for sin, something like an allergy so that whenever sin is in the vicinity something would happen to our bodies so we would be aware of the danger and be able to avoid it before it became a problem.  Wait a minute, we do have something.  It’s called the Holy Spirit.

    John 16:13 tells us “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth.’ (KJV)  When He guides us in all truth we will know when evil is near and what direction we are supposed to go.  The important thing to remember is that when we hear His warning we need to heed it and obey His direction.
