Stone Soup for Five: How Satan Encourages Us to Sin--Method 3

How Satan Encourages Us to Sin--Method 3

As we continue to go through Thomas Brooks' book, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, today we are going to look closer at method three (see method one and two here).  This third method is when Satan tries to make sin seem less serious than it is... trying to convince us that this sin is just a small thing in light of other things.

Questions to journal through:
  1. Have you ever been tempted to consider a sin as little?  Can you give a specific example in your life or a story you've heard from someone else?
  2. According to point four, sometimes the "small sins" are the most dangerous ones.  Have you seen this in your own life?
  3. Make a list of all the ways you lose fellowship with God when you are tempted to justify and continue in a "small" sin.  (For example, if I'm not in fellowship with God, I lose out on His peace, His comfort, His joy.)  
  4. What "small" temptations are you most susceptible to?  How can you prevent giving into this type of temptation in the future?

Coming next week:
Method 4: Satan shows us that even the best men sin,
but hides their pain, tears, groans, humbling,
and repentance.
