The world will try to pull you away from God at every opportunity. Don’t give in! People will try to pull you down to their level whenever they can. Don’t let them! “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7.
On the surface things might look attractive. What they present to you might peak your interest. The upside could be more than you would have ever imagined having, but … there’s always a but. But you’ll have to fudge the numbers a little. But you’ll have to lie about it to your boss. But we have to go at night so that we wont be seen. Don’t give in!
It’s just a night out with some friends. We’re just going for a few drinks. She’s just a friend. Your wife doesn’t need to know all the details. What she doesn’t know wont hurt her. It’s too late to go home now. You might as well spend the night. Do not go along with them!
When has the world enticed you down a path that you now regret?
How can you be sure to resist next time the world comes knocking on your door?
Submit to God, resist the devil!
