SON SHINE 39: BAITED
The bait was irresistible as free bottles of alcohol beckoned in their variety. With no known church member in sight and following a re-discovered appetite, he had a good helping of an assortment, but somehow, managed his way home. Hours later, he returned to the venue, sober and intent on assuring himself that he was not discovered. Unknown to him, there was someone in the crowd who knew him well enough.
?Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.? ? Hebrews 12: 1 (KJV)
Turn back now from that path of eventual regret.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
