Sin Will Disappoint You by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/05/12

“I thought that by taking our relationship to another level, you know, physically, my boyfriend and I would be closer. But sleeping together has just caused more problems—a lot more!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We think wrong choices will make us happy, but sin never pays what it promises us. It might yield some pleasure, but Hebrews 11 refers to it as “fleeting pleasure.”

“I thought I’d be the life of the party. Now I’m spending all my time in a recovery program.”

Nancy: We all know what it’s like to sinfully indulge our flesh, hoping for some kind of relief or emotional thrill. But when it’s over, we don’t usually look back and say, “Wow, that was sure worth it!” If we’re honest we’d have to say, “That brief pleasure wasn’t worth the price I paid to get it.”

Sinful pleasures just don’t last. We need to remember that when we face temptation. Instead, trust God’s Word when He promises to reward faithfulness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael
