Nibbling at Satan's golden baits!

(Brooks "Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices")

". . . the deceitfulness of sin." Hebrews 3:13

Sin is of a very deceitful and bewitching nature. It will
kiss the soul, and look enticing to the soul—and yet betray
the soul forever! It will with Delilah smile upon us—that it
may betray us into the hands of the devil—as she did
Samson into the hands of the Philistines.

Tell the bewitched soul that sin is a viper that will certainly
kill; that sin often kills secretly, insensibly, eternally—yet
the bewitched soul cannot, and will not, cease from sin.

A man bewitched with sin—had rather lose God, Christ,
heaven, and his own soul—than part with his sin! Oh,
therefore, forever take heed of playing with or nibbling
at Satan's golden baits!
