    Here are my notes from Sunday night.....


    =======================
    GRAB YOUR BIBLES James 1:14-17
    =======================
    Tonight’s message is going to be about.....the details of temptation and sin!
    As can only be explained........by God’s Word!
    =======================
    LETS READ THE TEXT James 1:14-17
    =======================

    =======================
    V.14A “But every man is tempted,”
    -TEMPTATION.......IS INEVITABLE-
    (So prepare yourself for it:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Temptation....is a part of our life:
    So we should learn all we can about it!
    =======================
    V.14B “when he is drawn away”
    -THE FIRST STEP.....OF TEMPTATION-
    (Being drawn away from the LORD:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Recognize...that anything that draws us away:
    Is a “temptation...to sin”!
    =======================
    V.14C “of his own lust,”
    -THE PART OF US.....WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT-
    (Our flesh:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Therefore we must......work:
    To bring our body under subjection!
    =======================
    V.14D “and enticed.”
    -SATAN’S PART...THAT WE HAVE TO BE LOOKING OUT FOR-
    (His enticements:)
    That he will expose to our flesh:
    --------------------------------------------------
    He will try.....one lure.....then another:
    Trying to get us to “bite”!
    Just like a fisherman...trying to catch a fish!
    =======================
    V.15A “Then”
    -THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT......IN THIS MESSAGE-
    (The fact that...temptation has a goal for us:)
    And it wants to take us....on a long trip:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Down the long road.....to destruction!
    =======================
    V.15B “when lust hath conceived,”
    -THE FIRST STEP......DOWN THE LONG ROAD OF SIN-
    (Giving in to temptation:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: The result of giving into our lust:
    Is something.....”gets conceived”!
    --------------------
    And just like in the physical realm:
    When something is conceived:
    It has to be dealt with!
    --------------------------------------------------
    We always deal with sin....by “repentance”!
    =======================
    V.15C “it bringeth forth sin:”
    -THE GUARANTEED RESULT..........OF GIVING IN TO..........TEMPTATION-
    (Every time:) ......... "Sin":
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is a line....that you do not want to cross:
    Therefore don’t play around....on the line!
    =======================
    V.15D “and sin, when it is finished,”
    -THE BIG PLANS........SIN.....HAS FOR US-
    (Sin.....never just sits there:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    It always wants to take us further:
    Than we really want to go:
    ------------------------
    If we let it!
    =======================
    Romans 7:14-22
    -UNDERSTANDING WHY.......WE SIN....WHEN WE DON’T WANT TO-
    (It has to do with....our changed heart:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    It all comes down to verse 22....
    “For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:”
    ------------------------
    When we are saved...our inward man hates sin:
    So we can sin....with out really wanting to!
    =======================
    V.15E “bringeth forth death.”
    -THE ULTIMATE GOAL.......OF EVERY SIN-
    (Even the little ones:)
    ------------------------
    They want to destroy us:
    --------------------------------------------------
    -PRAISE THE LORD.......FOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS-
    Because of.... “Jesus’s blood”:
    Sin....can’t take a Christian to hell:
    ------------------------
    But it can still destroy our life!
    See Luke 13:3
    =======================
    V.16 “Do not err, my beloved brethren.”
    -GOD’S WARNING TO US....ABOUT TEMPTATION AND SIN-
    (Be careful....and don’t “cross that line”:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    According to the law:
    It is a real “line”....that must be crossed!
    =======================
    V.17A “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,”
    -THE LORD’S WONDERFUL....ANSWER “TO TEMPTATION”-
    (The wonderful life He has given us:)
    Here on Earth:
    --------------------------------------------------
    E.G. 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
    V.1 ¶ Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: [It is] good for a man not to touch a woman.
    V.2 Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

    =======================
    V.17B “and cometh down from the Father of lights,”
    -THE LORD’S.....SHORT TERM PLANS FOR US-
    (He wants to shower us with blessings:)
    Right here and now:
    --------------------------------------------------
    If we let Him!
    ------------------------
    Because we can rob ourselves of blessings:
    By disobeying Him!
    =======================
    V.17C “with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
    -THE UNIQUE QUALITY.....OF GOD’S BLESSINGS-
    (They are always perfect:)
    With no down side:
    ------------------------
    Note:This is the wonderful life God has given us:
    --------------------------------------------------
    But Satan....always tries to make them look bad!
    =======================
