Hijacked!!

The cross effect blog has been respectfully ‘hi-jacked’ for the next 8
weeks as Mr. Chad takes his spring break. Those teachers, they get all
the perks!

In the next 7 weeks, we’ll be previewing a book, chapter by chapter,
titled “7 Men and the Secret of their Greatness” by Eric Metaxas.
Each week I will unveil the next great man.  I hope you enjoy reading
about some of Christianity’s most courageous figures.

But first, a few words on how we can prepare to fight, especially with
the onset of warmer weather.  We all need to vigilant in the area of
sexual purity but as the weather warms and the layers of womens’
clothing become less, we need to be extra vigilant. Let’s prepare now
as this battle is imminent. Whether you choose to ‘bounce’ your eyes
or you have made a covenant with our Heavenly Father, lets all be
prepared to fight.

Be self controlled and alert. Your enemy, the devil, prowls around
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  1 Peter 5:8

We know that sin can be very attractive and, at times, downright
intoxicating.  But the damage lasts a lot longer than any stolen
moment of pleasure.  Sexual sin distorts your thinking, defiles your
body, disrupts your relationships and defeats your testimony. As P Dan
recently preached on; would we take that lustful look at someone or
screen if Jesus was standing behind us?

Lets all live for Jesus, doing the right thing today, then do the same tomorrow!
