Is there encouragement for those facing temptation?
I struggle with temptation. I know all followers of our Master Jesus do. I start with the good news that we are more than conquerors. Jesus gives us the power of His Holy Spirit.
Nelson’s Bible Dictionary defines temptation as “an enticement or invitation to sin, with the implied promise of greater good to be derived from following the way of disobedience.” Resisting temptation begins with knowing that Satan is the supreme “tempter” who has been tempting mankind since our Creator placed His first two children in the Garden of Eden.
Watch Danny Prince discuss the issue of temptation.
No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.
