2 Timothy 2:26 (ESV)
And they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.
When you think that sin doesn't get a hold of you think about the eagle in this story.
The story is told of an eagle perched on a block of ice just above Niagara Falls. The swift current carried the ice and its majestic passenger closer to the edge of the great precipice. The cries of other birds and animals warning the eagle of danger that lay ahead were to no avail. "I have great and powerful wings," he boasted. "I can fly from my perch at any time. I can handle it." Suddenly the edge of the falls was only a few feet away. The torrent of water rushed the block of ice over the great falls. The eagle spread his powerful wings to mount up over the impending doom only to discover too late that his claws had become frozen to the cake of ice.
None of us is immune to the consequences of sin.
Dear Lord, we pray that we would not get trapped in our sins. We pray that we would let You guard our hearts from the temptations around us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
