The demons bait the lure and tie it to the hook of sin.
They cast the line and wait for our response,
Knowing that the bait will match
The warped desires within our souls.
The Lord provides a way of escape,
A lifeline for our tempted souls.
We face a choice:
To trust the Lord
Or to chomp the bait,
And with the bait the hook,
That wicked hook of sin and death.
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
