Cut off my arm?!

I thought this was an excellent article from World Magazine by Andree Seu Peterson. She takes the passage in Matthew 18:8 where Jesus says, "If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away."  He goes on to say that it is better to be maimed than to go to hell with all of our body parts present. The author challenges us to realize that God would have us face up to our temptations and defeat them. We need to die daily to self and sin and we need to be willing to struggle against sin and not just roll over and play dead.

Excellent article. I encourage you to check it out.
