Pleasure for a while

Satan is such a liar (John 8:44). He deceitfully allures by telling us that he will show us a good time. The Word of God does tell us that sin brings pleasure for a season (Hebrews 11:25). Satan does not give the full picture. He does not tell those he is enticing that sin brings about horrible consequences, broken health, defiled bodies, damaged reputations, and corrupted minds. The pleasures we have in Christ are pure, are truly satisfying and are forever more! ... (Psalm 16:11).
