Ok, This is what I hear often, “the temptation is too strong Pastor.”
Let’s all be honest, we are all tempted with sin just like Adam and Eve were, BUT…….. We have an advantage!
WE HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING INSIDE US!
Over the years, I have found that the people who continue to choose reputation end up allowing themselves to be placed in an environment where the sin is most prevalent.
Alcohol – DO NOT GO TO THE BARS AND PARTIES!
Drugs – DO NOT GO TO THE AREA OR HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE DOING THE DRUGS!
Swearing – DO NOT HANG OUT WITH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CUSSING!
Porn – DO NOT GET ON YOUR COMPUTER OR BUY THE MAGAZINES!
Sex – DO NOT GO TO THE BOYFRIEND OR GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE!
Shopping – DO NOT GO TO THE STORES WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARDS!
WE HAVE TO MAKE CHOICES TO CUT OFF SIN FROM OUR LIVES.
Matt 5:29-30, If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
NO TEMPTATION IS TOO GREAT!
1 Cor 10:13, The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.
YOU MIGHT HAVE TO BREAK OFF OLD FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS IF THEY CONTINUE TO BE USED TO TEMPT YOU WITH SIN!
GOUGE YOUR EYE OUT!
