Hope Beyond Temptation: Staying Clean in a Corrupt Society
First Peter 1:13–21 points believers to His example to show how His followers can stay clean in this corrupt world. Be challenged as Pastor Chuck Swindoll exhorts you to throw off the shackles of sin and live free in God’s grace.
The Significance of One
It matters that you get involved. This doesn’t necessarily mean joining a protest march; it can be as straightforward as connecting with people and making a positive difference in their lives.
The Day of the Flies
Curiosity in the occult can lead to tragedy. What seems like harmless and innocent fun can quickly escalate to the point where you’re involved spiritually and physically. Like Chuck Swindoll says, “Watch out for the enemy. He not only plays dirty; he plays for keeps. And he’s playing for your soul.”
It takes courage to stand against the crowd and speak the truth. Sometimes it isn’t easy, and it can be isolating and lonely. But that’s how God shapes our character—when we depend solely on Him for our strength.
