What Lures You?



Text: “But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust” (James 1:14).

As I stepped out my door this morning, and walked the 30 feet to my dock, I was wondering which lure to use.


Where Are You Going?

Text: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). 
Someone has said, in jest, that man’s life is made up of 20 years of his mother asking him where he is going, 40 years of his wife asking him where he has been and one hour at his funeral when everyone wonders where he is going.


No Retreat

“But we are not of them that shrink back into perdition; but of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul” (Hebrews 10:39).

We are engaged in an incredible war.  The battles take place in our hearts.  We are not fighting “against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, and against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
