Attractions, Distractions, Infractions

What is it that you know God is displeased with? What is drawing you at your weakest point? Maybe I am the only that has one, but what about lying, sowing discord, debt, envy? In Hebrews 3 & 4 we learn of the Jews who had renounced Judaism, turned from Judaism and begun to point toward Christ but never really received Christ. They'd gone away from Judaism but they hadn't stepped into a real relationship with Christ so they're turning around back to Judaism.  The Jews are warned not to turn around and go back to Judaism no matter the pressure and love for their sinful nature. They are encouraged to take the next step and keep faith. Many of us find ourselves in this situation. Our attractions, become distractions from Christ and we end up creating an infraction against God. When on the edge of making a decision which truly requires us to step out in faith in Jesus Christ we fold. In most sports, the game is won before you step on the field.  The same follows here, when your attractions begins to call you, you have to have enough WORD in you.  It does not have to be memorized, but in your spirit as a defense. As with the Jews, we cannot risk future generations being tempted by the things we could never break over our families.  The future is too vital for us to fail and fall back. When decision time or adversity comes ... strive, hasten, be diligent.
