Dwelling on the Word of God: Resisting Temptation (Tuesday 18th February 2014)

Posted on February 18, 2014 at 2:18 AM
From today's reading (James 1:12-18):
 
'Everyone who is tempted is attracted and seduced by his own wrong desire. Then the desire conceives and gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it too has a child, and the child is death.'
 
 
This is quite a chilling passage! 
 
The lesson is to resist temptation; much like Jesus did when he was tempted by the devil.
 
Perhaps it is worth just reading this passage over and over for a minute or so, just to let it sink in; to absorb it.  It's hard hitting stuff but it is the Word of God and must be taken seriously.
 
Read it over.  What message can you take from it, especially when you consider that Lent is just around the corner?

And when we talk about the poor and the needy we are not only talking about those who line our streets searching for food, shelter and money. We are also talking about those who are poor in faith, who don't have that life saving relationship with Christ.
