Rescue from Temptation

Description

We can be rescued from the temptations of the world so that we will not resist any clear call from God.

"So also the Lord can rescue you and me from the temptations that surround us, and continue to punish the ungodly until the day of final judgement comes" (2 Peter 2:9).

Charles G. Finney was one of America's most outstanding evangelists. One day while he was still a young lawyer, he sat in his village law office in the state of New York. It was early in the day, and the Lord began to deal with him.

"Finney," an inner voice asked, "what are you going to do when you finish your course?"
"Put out a shingle and practice law."
"Then what?" the voice persisted.
"Get rich."
"Then what?"
"Retire."
"Then what?"
"Die."
"Then what?"
This time the words came tremblingly, "The judgment."

Young Finney ran for the woods half a mile away. As he prayed, he vowed that he would not leave until he had made his peace with God. After a long struggle, he discovered that he could not resist God's call, and he came out of the woods that evening with the high purpose of living the remainder of his life to the glory of God, enjoying Him forever.

Like that great preacher and evangelist you and I can be rescued from the temptations of the world so that we will not resist any clear call from God.

Bible Reading: II Peter 2:10-17

TODAY'S ACTION POINT: When the world tries to squeeze me into its mold, I'll not resist the clear call from our Lord Jesus Christ to follow Him.
