Sin’s Hold by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/28/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sin lures us with the illusion that it’s the doorway to freedom.

“I couldn’t wait to get out of my parents’ house so I could go to every party on campus. It was time for total freedom!”

Nancy: But ultimately, sin enslaves us.

“Now all I think about is alcohol, whether there’s a party or not. I can’t stop!”

Nancy: Our culture has promoted a “double the pleasure, none of the guilt” sort of lifestyle. What’s the result? We’re slaves to lust, food, entertainment, work, toys, noise, activity, alcohol, drugs, busyness, and on and on. We’ve become dominated by the very “pleasures” we thought would liberate us.

The apostle Peter talks about those who entice others to sin, and says, “They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
