“In trying to help those who have erred, we must be careful not to be trapped ourselves! Many a would-be rescuer has been drowned himself. When an unstable believer has been captured by false doctrine, we must be very careful as we try to help him, for Satan can use him to defile us. In trying to save him, we may be stained or burned ourselves!”—Warren W. Wiersbe

  1. We must Surrender Our Lives to God
Jude 1:24-25; Psalm 140:4; Psalm 121:3–8; 2 Th 3:3
