Biggest Thrills And Best Prizes

Jul 24, 2022

Temptation often invites us to sin in two ways.  The first is like a carny barking at us to “Step right up” for a chance to have a thrilling experience or win a desirable prize that is never worth it in the end.  The second is like a boat at sea gently rocking us back and forth until we have drifted to sleep in indifference to God’s better ways.  Whether it shouts or whispers, temptation beckons us to look away from Jesus, love something more than Jesus, and live for a substitute for Jesus.   By grace, we can resist by reminding ourselves that the biggest thrills and the best prizes are enjoyed by those who are anchored to Him.
