Satan attempts to cut us off from the Heavenly Father by the same temptations, lust, greed, envy, being rude and a multitude of sins we get caught up in. We know our flesh is weak.
Satan works like an eskimo killing a wolf: An eskimo will put blood on a knife and freeze it, they repeat this process, until the knife has layers of frozen blood.
The wolf comes upon the knife and licks it, and is overtaken by his hungerous desires that he doesn't realize his tongue is being sliced, until his tongue is actually cut off:fact.
How many can relate to how our sinful nature, desires so of the world, we swirl and twirl, not realizing how far we have fallen into sin until it's too late..
There is hope through Our Risen Savior Jesus Christ.
Don't be cut off.......
Inspired by a sermon I heard once.
