Many times, when people yield to temptation, they respond by defending their actions and blaming others. If we want to behave in a godly manner, we have to learn the right way to deal with temptation. In this message, Dr. Stanley explains what temptation is and how it works.
Temptation has been part of human existence ever since Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. Even Jesus was tempted when He walked this earth, but He was the only one who successfully resisted every time. Although none of us can achieve His perfect record, God has not left us to fend off the devil’s attacks on our own. To aid us in standing firm against fierce temptations, He’s given us a powerful verse of Scripture in 1 Corinthians 10:13: “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” If we want to respond wisely to temptation, this verse must become part of our armor of protection.
Temptation is the enticement of our natural, God-given desires to go beyond God-given bounds. We can blame our failure to resist temptation on others, Satan, or God Himself, but in reality, we are the ones who choose to indulge.
