The deceitfulness of sin!

(by Jeremy Taylor)

"Lest any of you be hardened through the
 deceitfulness of sin!
" Hebrews 3:13

First sin startles him,
then it becomes pleasing,
then easy,
then delightful,
then frequent,
then habitual,
then confirmed!

Then the man is impenitent,
then obstinate,
then resolves never to repent,
and then he is damned!

"For the wages of sin is death!" Romans 6:23
