Danger: Watch Out For Talking Snakes

SCRIPTURE


And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and a delight to the eyes, and to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and gave it to her husband. -Genesis 3:6

OBSERVATION

Just a few weeks ago my pastor talked about temptation with Luke 4 as his scripture for the sermon. Luke 4 is about Jesus being led into the desert to be tempted for 40 days.

We learned that Satan used the three basic forms of temptation on Jesus: cravings of the body, the lust of the eyes and the pride of our heart. There in the garden Satan used all three of these to tempt Eve.

My biggest question is where was Adam while Eve was talking to the devil?

APPLICATION

Christian men need to stand up and protect their families because Satan is on the attack. We have to be serious about the battle that is being waged constantly or we will fall.

We are just one step from stupid! Be alert! Protect yourself and your family.

Be serious and keep watch; the Evil One, who is against you, goes about like a lion with open mouth in search of food; Do not give way to him but be strong in your faith, -1Peter 5:8,9

The only way that we will grow is to get into the word DAILY, there is no other way. Thinking that Sunday morning is gonna give you any growth as a Christ follower is like saying that you can be a proficient auto mechanic by hearing about it in a class once a week.

PRAYER

May your people be ready, on guard against Satan. Wake up your people to the dangers that we face when we are tempted.
