Quote of the Week

“Usually, however, our sinful actions stem not from a failure to achieve but from an inner urge to fulfill our own desires. As James wrote, ‘Each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire’ (1:14). We gossip or lust because of the sinful pleasure we get out of it. At that time, the lure of that momentary pleasure is stronger than our desire to please God.” -Jerry Bridges, Respectable Sins
