The Pitfall of Pleasure

- Sermons - Journey with God

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on January 20, 2008 by Pastor Tim Schmoyer.
Part of the Journey with God series.

One of the chief methods that Satan uses to distract Christians from developing a deep and sustaining friendship with God is the distraction of pleasure. No pleasure is in and of itself sinful, for God made all things for our enjoyment and we should receive it with thanksgiving, but if we live a life filled with chasing the next pleasure, then we are distracting ourselves. Find what distracts you and discard it!

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
