What Pleasures Sin Promises

“Think carefully of what pleasures sin promises. Sins lie. They always lie. If a bank treated your deposits for one month, the way sin treats the hopes that you entrust to it, you would never use that bank again. If your employer promised you benefits and didn’t provide, you would leave that job. Sin has lied to you far more than the worst employer. Why will you continue to trust it? Why will you continue to serve it? Why think that this next time, it will fulfill its promises? It won’t.”

– Mark Dever, Jesus Had A Record (2007)
