We all face it every day of our lives. It is an enticement to do, say, or think contrary to God’s character and design for us. Temptation is not sin, but an opportunity to sin. The Scriptures tell us that Jesus was “tempted in every way, just as we are – yet He did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15). Sin occurs when we yield or give in to temptation.
It’s important to recognize that temptation comes from the evil one. We know that his motivation behind every temptation is to steal, kill, and destroy. The temptation that is so appealing is a death trap. But with every temptation comes an opportunity to honor God and our families by remaining firm in our convictions and steadfast in reading God’s word. Obedience to His word is our part. God’s part is to provide a way to escape the grip of the evil one in our thoughts, attitudes, and actions. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
This booklet was written to encourage you in resisting temptation and claiming victory over those things that lure us away from living the life God intended.
