7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
We live in a world full of temptations. Everything from extra marital affairs to substance addictions to gluttonous diets, we are confronted every day with the urge to do something self-pleasing and sinful. Many people talk about struggling with temptation and how difficult it is to resist. This is due in part to the fact that they feel the need to resist the temptations by their own willpower. If we spend our time resisting the devil, he will eventually wear us down and we will fall. However, if we focus on pleasing God and seeking His truth, the ability to resist the devil becomes naturally stronger. The key to successfully resisting a temptation is to completely submit to God. Psalm 34:14 says, “Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it”. As we draw closer to God we develop a desire to come even closer to Him, so much so that temptations begin to fade, and our ability to resist the devil is driven by the Holy Spirit, rather than our own devices.
Heavenly Father, help us to submit to your will for our lives and give us a burning desire to please you in every way. In Christ’s name, amen.
Looking Back & Moving Forward
As the City Mission begins preparations for the holiday season, we reflect on the whirlwind that 2015 has been. Many new partnerships were created in the community through the City Mission’s Golf Outing, Community Picnic, Great Gatsby Gala and other avenues. New volunteers came on board, and current volunteers were faithful in their offerings. Every year the Mission is humbled and amazed at the outpouring of support and love from our community.
Along with new community events, the City Mission expansion is underway. We hope to occupy the new building by the end of December at which time the old building remodel will begin. We are so pleased to have reached $2.25 of the $2.55 million needed for our expansion. Please pray for the campaign, our staff, and the people we serve as we continue to meet the current need in our community and expand to meet future needs.
