For week 4/16 – 4/22/2018
God’s Exit Plan
1st Corinthians 10: 13-14
When we are tempted and give in to sin, we sometimes look for someone else to blame. But every sin is our responsibility. James 1:14 tells us that when we are led into temptation we are led there, ” By our own lust.” God will always give us away to escape. But the truth is that in most cases we really do not want to escape, we are right where we desire to be. The truth is that there is a part of us that does not want to completely do away with the sin.
Playing with sin is one of the most dangerous things we could ever do. Instead of seeing how close we can get to sin without actuating sinning, the Bible instructs us to ” flee all youthful list.” ( 2nd Timothy 2:22) God places a way of escape from every temptation so the responsibility of escaping sin is on us to take His way of escape.
Next time you find yourself in a moment of temptation, remember God has provided a way out of it, and quickly flee before you find yourself trapped in sin. God Bless!!
