Just Say Yes

17 Jun

Never say no to temptation; say yes to Jesus!… When you say no, you are drawing on your willpower, concentrating all the energy of your flesh to refuse the temptation. You are mustering all your human ability to do something to please God. But that isn’t the way the Christian life is lived. That is dead religion at its best!
