Fragrant aromas fill the night,
hypnotic sounds, flashing lights;
enticing visions lure a soul
tempting one to lose control.
Like bait that lures unwary prey,
satan waits to lead you astray…
who then can escape temptations,
and turn away from strong sensations?
Hopefully those saved and restored,
redeemed by the blood of the Lord,
Transformed into brand new men,
cleansed and truly born again.
If we’re honest we’ll admit
apart from Jesus we’d submit,
to enchanting sights and sounds
that everywhere we go abound.
Don’t fall into the devil’s snare
dangling his bait everywhere.
Cling to the Lord, and be wise,
so you can resist satan’s lies!
‘God is faithful,
He will keep the temptations from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it.
When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it.’
[1 Corinthians 10:13]
