Sermon Illustrations

When I was young in Christ I was struggling with some temptations, and no one really could understand. Only God and me could. So in attempt to remind my self what I needed to do in the midst of temptation, while in a sober mind unclouded by temptation I wrote myself a letter something to the affect of

Hey, are you stupid? Don’t mess up our future for only a moment pleasure! Etc…

Each time I was tempted to sin,I would open that letter and read my plea to myself not to make the same mistake once again.

I like David was shakeing O MY SOUL, FORGET NOT ALL OF HIS BENEFITS.
