If sin be evil and should be fled from, why would you embrace it as an old friend so often? Would you slumber with venomous snakes? Or dance on thin ice above awaiting doom? Such actions would be the behavior or someone out of their mind or someone longing to be hurt. Do you long to be hurt? Are you out of your mind? If no, then forksake your old friend with whom you've enjoyed so many hours of destruction to your own soul. Pluck out the needle of death from your arm! Rise from this bed of ashes you seem content to lie in and let Christ be your portion, day and night.
