Temptatations all around / Texting while driving

August 13, 2009

Hello Saints It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Texting while driving is dangerous!!! Last Sunday the CC Male Choir, a group of men at my church that I can say I am proud to be a part of, went to a nursing home to sing. As usual one of us had to preach and it was my turn. I preached a sermon from the book of 2 Samuel 11:1-4 about David and Bathsheba and temptation and how it leads to sin and how sin leads to death. Also I spoke about Joseph how when he was tempted he ran from the temptation, not giving it a chance to overtake him. The same goes for answering that cell phone when driving (without the proper equipment, like a Bluetooth headset) and especially for texting while driving. I must admit, I have done it before and it is a shame. When you text and drive you lose focus and you are not as alert as to when you give your full attention to the activity of driving. This may cause an accident which could be very fatal. As with temptations, when you give into the temptation no matter what they may be as described in Galatians 5:19 – 21 which reads : 19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. then you find yourself giving in to one of these sins which lead to a terrible accident which could have fatal consequences. Anyway I just want to remind you all that we must stay alert to those terrible temptations that so often present their selves to us and we must stay alert to our driving. So next time you are tempted to do wrong or even tempted to text while driving think about the consequences.
