Sin is a Trap!

My friends, you are spiritual. So if someone is trapped in sin, you should gently lead that person back to the right path. But watch out, and don't be tempted yourself.

Galatians 6:1

Sin is a trap! 

Often the trap is set with the promise of some blessing that turns out to be lie!  The first bate used in Satan's trap was the lie that after eating of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, Adam and Eve would be like God!  

Being like God is not a bad thing! In fact, every Christ follower should make it a daily goal to be like Jesus, who was God in the flesh! But the trap of sin will lure you to be like God by listening to the "wisdom" of this world instead of the Word of God!

Remember that sinners are trapped and cannot by their own power free themselves from sin! Only the Blood of Jesus Christ can do that!  The caution of Galatians 6:1 is that we must watch out so we are not tempted as we lead others back to the right path!  

"Lord Jesus, open my eyes for the traps of Satan that line the road on my walk today!  Keep me from setting my foot in one of Sin's attempts to separate me from Your Love!  May Your Name be praised now and forever.  Amen."
