Hebrews 11:25 choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,‭

Based on this verse, the Bible refers to sin as pleasurable. It feels good to let loose and become intoxicated. It feels great to allow lust to take over and do what you please. It’s exhilarating to lie, cheat, and get over on people to get to the top. Although, everything is permissible for us, everything is not beneficial for us (1 Cor. 10:23). At the time sin seems pleasurable, but deep inside we know it’s not the correct way to live. For those who have no problem enjoying the pleasures of sin, you’ve desensitized yourselves to the Word of God.

When God tells us not to do this or to live a certain way, He’s not saying it to take away our fun or to make our lives boring. He’s providing instructions for our good. God is the Master Architect. He knows what we need to operate at our maximum potential and He knows what we need to reap the full benefits of abundant living. Sin is not one of those things.

Although sin is pleasurable, it’s only pleasurable for a moment. The joy we experience in doing things God’s way, is far greater than any pleasure sin can offer. Live holy.

Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
