Recently, we studied scripture that talked about the “Fall of Man”. That was when the serpent got Adam and Eve to eat of the only tree that God forbid them to eat from. I talked about the ways that the devil will get us to doubt God’s Word, he will deceive us into thinking that sin is good for us (if everyone else is doing it, why can’t you?), once we are convinced it is good for us we become disobedient which disrupts the peace in our lives. I shared that the devil’s tactics have never changed and, unfortunately, they haven’t had to.
I was reading an article today about Lance Armstrong; the world class cyclist that was stripped of all of his titles and awards because it was discovered that he was using banned, performance enhancement drugs. This article stated, “Armstrong, who was stripped of his record seven Tour de France titles last year, said he would still dope if he had to do it over again because most of his peers were cheating, too, according to ESPN.com” His quote reminded me of how the devil will work to convince us that what we know is wrong is actually right and good.
As you look back on the sin in your life, if you had the do it all over, would you do it again?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
