Victory Over Temptation

By   •   October 20   •   Topics:

God never promised to remove temptation from us, for even Christ was subject to it. The Bible says that “He was tested in all things, like as we, yet without sin.” There is no good reason why you should seek to escape, for such times of testing have beneficial effects. There is a sense of achievement and assurance that results from victory over temptation that cannot come to us otherwise.

Temptation shows what people really are. It does not make us Christian or un-Christian. It does make the Christian stronger and causes him to discover resources of power. You can benefit from what might be tragedy, if you will only discover that in just such a time of temptation, Christ can become more real to you than ever, and His salvation will become more meaningful.

Prayer for the day

In all times of temptation, may I remember Your example, Lord Jesus.

    This is so uplifting. My friend found this for me, and it was right when I felt so weak. This is so wonderful and it touched my heart as a struggling teen Christian <3

    I was tempted by family to drink and act like my old self, but guess what! I had gone to church that day and received power from the Holy Ghost to resist temptation. If I hadn’t been in relationship with the lord I probably would have given in.
