Temptation

John 14:4

John 14:4

You know the way to the place where I am going.

After Thought

"Follow Me!" Those are the words of salvation that takes into account our will and our behavior. Faith follows the Lord in His steps and we know that as we do, where He is, we will be also.

Romans 13:13

Romans 13:13

Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don't participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy.

Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil's trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.

Joshua 24:15

Joshua 24:15

But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.

After Thought

Proverbs 6:25

Proverbs 6:25

Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;

After Thought

Too many Christians have a commitment of convenience. They'll stay faithful as long as it's safe and doesn't involve risk, rejection, or criticism. Instead of standing alone in the face of challenge or temptation, they check to see which way their friends are going.

1 Peter 5:8

1 Peter 5:8

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

After Thought

This cat is no lion, nor is it going to devour someone, but it is a great illustration to remind us how subtle traps and snares can be. There is no such thing as an unattractive temptation.
