Dangerous situations don’t always start out looking dangerous. The road seemed fine until you hit the ice patch. The stove looked cool until you set your hand on it. The parking space appeared wide enough until you tried pulling in.
Spiritually dangerous situations don’t always start out looking dangerous either. That’s because the devil is crafty. He’s a snake who quietly slithers his way in close. But he is venomous and dangerous.
It might seem innocent to just look at her. It might feel right to say what you’re thinking in the moment. It might appear normal to cheat a little bit. But watch out for the danger!
Jesus was perfect for you. He navigated every spiritual danger flawlessly. God accepts his record in place of yours. You’ve been set free!
To stay on the path of freedom, watch out for the danger ahead.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1).
