Stoning Sin

Deuteronomy 13:10 – You shall stone him to death with stones, because he has sought to draw you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Death by stoning was the way to deal with sinners under the Old Covenant.  But under the new covenant, we no longer stone sinners, but we do need to ‘stone’ sin.  This means that we find those areas of our lives that are out of line with what God says and we ‘stone’ them – throwing the rock of the Word of God at it continually until it dies! 

Just as Jesus used the Word of God as an offensive weapon against the devil, so it is our offensive weapon against sin in our lives.  We are ‘transformed by the renewing of our minds’.  Anytime there is ongoing sin for us, it shows an area of untruth that we’re still believing.  The only remedy for a plague of lies is a hail of truth!!
