Introduction To Sermon

What I learned from Young and the Restless- If you play with sin long enough it will catch up with you
This evening we examine Solomon’s illustration of sin. We see how it seems to start harmless, but lead to destruction. Lastly we will see how God gives us victory over temptation through Christ

Solomon’s Introduction (1-5)

Keeping God’s Word Close will give you instant access to victory over temptation
Some temptations you will avoid
Others will have less of an attraction
Even in the worst you will have an escape
1 Corinthians 10:13 CSB
13 No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.

Solomon’s Illustration (6-23)

I. (6-9) The Setup for Sin

The young man heads in the wrong direction

II. (10-20) The seduction of sin

1. (10-13a) The aggressiveness of temptation

1 Peter 5:8 CSB
8 Be sober-minded, be alert. Your adversary the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.

2. (13b-20) The craftiness of temptation

Three lies
13b-15: God wont care
16-18: The pleasure will be worth it
19,20: We wont get caught

III. (21-23) The Sadness of Sin

Solomon’s Insistence

I. Do not let your heart turn toward temptation

II. Do not let your feet turn toward temptation

III. Learn from the downfall of others

IV. Learn to have a healthy fear of sin

Conclusion: Jesus can deliver us from temptation
