This place is intoxicating – if you let it. Its really strange, so much luxury, so much comfort, so much “playing”. It even smells luxurious. The amount of temptations are actually overwhelming. Its really the most interesting, but yet the most bewildering place. Yes I am still talking about Vegas. I mean, even this morning while I was running I saw a truck with a billboard on it that proclaimed that there were ladies here that wanted to meet me! I couldn’t believe it. Those ladies really want to meet me! I didn’t call them….
Anyway, the thing I noticed is the the temptation is so blantantly obvious that its seems that you are either going to jump right in with both feet or you can very easily guard yourself. The extremeness of it is so different then the real world – where you have to be on guard all the time. And that is my message for all you unfornunate souls who are not spending two more days in Vegas. Be on guard. Be strong and show others the greatness of the living a life of hope.
6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 (New International Version)
