Stone Soup for Five: How Satan Encourages Us to Sin, Method 2

How Satan Encourages Us to Sin, Method 2

Last time we saw Method One of how Satan encourages us to sin from Thomas Brooks' book, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices.  Today let's look a little closer into Method Two:  
Satan paints over sin to look like virtue.

In this section of the book, Brooks also gives us things to consider about Christ.  He urges us on to serious thought about who Christ is and what He gave up to come to earth to be our Savior.

Questions to pray and journal through:

1.  Our heart is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9).  Pray that the Lord will open your eyes to any sins that you might be deceived about.

2.  Are there sins in your life (or have there been in the past) that Satan has painted over to make look like something good?

3.  Do you find it to be true that the more sin is painted over, the more dangerous it is?  How so?

4.  What do you think of the statement under point three: Until we have sinned, Satan is a parasite; after we have sinned, he is a tyrant.  Have you found that to be true in your own life?

5. How would seriously considering Christ help you in your fight against sin?  Is there a point on the Consider Christ page that especially stands out to you?
