The Lure and Shame of Sin

I heard a quote from Russell Moore this week concerning abortion but the quote also aids us all in the temption to sin and its effects afterwards. 

Moore stated, “The woman walking into the abortion clinic hears the whisper ‘It’s just tissue’ but on her way out she hears ‘That was a real baby.'” 

This is a clear picture of how the enemy works temptation and shame. His whole purpose is to destroy. Just know that God’s mercy and grace are bigger than our failings. 

And remember before caving into sin that there are lies on both sides. Test every thought and whisper with the Word of God. The hissing serpent still lingers but his days are numbered.
