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.
