Perenial Sin

It comes back again and again, to beckon, to tease, entice. It is that same old temptation that you know so well.

Occasionally, Satan gift-wraps it as something new, but usually, he doesn’t even have to bother. He just presents it and we snap on it, like a stupid trout caught over and over by the same lure and hook.

Paul decried the same dilemma: “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”

Then, in the same breath, he answered his own question: ”I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

Recognizing the temptation for the sham that it is marks the first step in overcoming it. But abiding in Him is certainly the giant second step. Freely discuss with Him sin’s glitter and charm. Admit to its attraction and your need for His help to overcome it.

When we come to God in spirit and in truth, He reveals amazing insights into the nature of our temptation and why it holds particular fascination to us. Herein is freedom and victory!
