Yes or No

Me: You know you are strange when you are inspired by a bottle of shampoo.

Bro and Mom: A bottle of shampoo?

Me: Yes

Yes or No
As you all know, it is a very hot day in Lawrenceville, GA. So, like most of probably, I took a shower after the morning service of Campmeeting. We just bought a bottle of clarifying shampoo for my pink hair and I was reading what it said. It was talking about how it removes gunk without damaging your hair. That's good, I thought to myself. Then it said "Say yes to beautiful without paying the price". Hm.
Satan says the same thing to us, "Say yes to sin without paying the price". Satan convinces people that there is no God so it doesn't matter if you sin. Or that you won't get caught so do whatever you want. He tells us we can do all this stuff without "paying the price" of hell or earthly consequences.
It kind of reminds me of the anti-drug organization that says, "Just say no [to drugs]", but it's even more than that. Just say no to alcoholism, smoking or any sort of addiction. Just say no to lying, cheating and stealing. Just say no to sin. Just say no.
Now while that is easier said than done (like most things), we need to try wholeheartedly to just say NO! We WILL mess up, but we need to try. In the long run it will actually benefit you. I guess it comes down to knowing who to say yes to and who to say no to. Do you say yes to Jesus or sin? Who will you say yes to?
