EXPOSITION:

Bait is any substance, especially food used in catching fish, or other animals by alluring them to a hook, snare, trap or net. It is an enticements or temptation to destroy. It is usually appealing because it contains some irresistible substance. It’s giver does not give it for the fun of it; it is to lure, to deceive, and to destroy. Watch it well. Lizards have a way of setting traps for their unsuspecting preys. This is World Lizard Day.

One of the potent instrument Satan uses today to get at Christians is his sinful allurements—bait. They include baits of lucrative jobs, positions, fame, etc. that allow one not to have ample time for his family and spiritual life. He makes Christians see it as something normal and harmless. When the Philistines wanted to catch the powerful Samson, Deliah was the bait. He accepted the poisonous ravaging beauty of the godless harlot and his glorious destiny was truncated and life terminated (Prov. 23:27-25). Love for gift was the bait used to truncate the glorious future of the ‘to be prophet’ Gahazi. 

Paul said in 2 Tim. 4:10 that Damas deserted him and the gospel which he once embraced for the bait of the pleasure of this present age — modernisation, materialism, etc. He loved worldly values and pleasures. The same is the condition of many Christians, today. The beauty of the present age — fashion, music,  riches, etc. is baits the devil is using to sweep many away from their Lord. Our love for the world should be Christ’s type of love for it.

Satan once presented the bait of food, power, and fame to Christ our Lord, but Christ was able to recognize and reject him by the Word that richly dwelled in Him (cf. Col. 3:16). The young slave boy and servant of Potiphar, Joseph, was at a time presented with the bait of fornication by her Master’s wife. His destiny would have been shattered, if he had fallen for it. His knowledge of the Lord God of Israel enable him reject the ungodly advance of her madam. 

A singer sang, “Whatever I love will not harm me, whatever will harm me I will not love, for not all that glitters is gold.” The killing and destructive power of bait is not physical. It may be difficult to recognise. Only the Spirit-filled Christians would recognize it — those that have knowledge of the Word.
