Temptation. ( Hebrews 4 v 14 - 16 )
It was H R. Palmer who wrote that old hymn ,' Yield not to temptation,
many years ago,we seldom hear it song these days ,and yet its message is
relevant to every generation. Every day everyone one of us face temptation
it is told that this hymn stopped a riot in a women's prison,again many years
ago.Sing Sing, had a women's section. One Sunday the women were gathered
together,for a religious service, the prison officer in charge, gave which caused
an uproar .A women's riot was harder to deal with than a riot by men,the situation
was getting out of hand, when someone started to sing the following.,
Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin,
Each victory will help you, some other to win.
Fight manfully onward ,dark passions sudue
Look ever to Jesus He will carry you through.
Very soon all the lady prisoners joined in and then quietly went back to their cells.
