Plenty of people tell us that sin does not have consequences, but they seek to lead us astray. As Paul reminded the Corinthian brethren of the wilderness wanderings of Israel, he pointed out some of their sins, and exhorted the Corinthians, and us, not to commit the same sins,

Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer (1 Corinthians 10.8–10). 

Paul implied that if we do the same things, we also will suffer. Therefore, let us follow the life of holiness that the Lord has set before us, and when we do sin, let us repent immediately, confessing our sins to the Father.
