Topic:  Temptation

Scripture:

...Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.

(NIV) Galations 1:7

 

Observation:

Here Paul is addressing the churches in Galatia. There have been people that have infiltrated the Church with false teachings and perverting the Gospel of Christ, which resulted in the people deserting the Gospel of Christ for some other teachings, literally turning away from all that Paul had taught them about Christ.

 

Application:

Today's distraction that would make us desert the Gospel of Christ probably has to do with how we spend our "time".  The culture of today lures us to make us feel like we need to grab whatever we can out of life and not miss out, Iphone, Ipods, Internet Access, 3d Televisions, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.  None of these are wrong in itself, but it can steal our "limited" time we have on Earth if we are not using it for God's Glory and fulfilling God's purpose for our lives.  It may not "look" like the typical idols or false gods of biblical times, but none the less we must be careful that it does not take our "worship" away from the true God. In essence today's idols are just taking on a different form.

 

Prayer:

Lord God help us in today's society to be protected from the temptations of this world.  It seems the temptations in the world for a Christian are escalating just as the catastrophic events and natural disasters are escalating here on this earth.  Help all of us as believers in Christ to put on our "Full Armor" everyday... to go to sleep with it and never take it off....especially in these End times.....in Jesus Name Amen
