STANDING FIRM

Battling temptation is a daily walk. Even the most loyal followers of Christ can be tempted ( Heb. 12:1). That” why the Lord’s prayer instructs us to ask God to “lead us not into temptation” ( Matt. 6:13).

The following principles can help you fight-and win-against temptation.

1.Be honest with God. At the time of temptation, don’t debate the issue. The longer we wrestle with tempting thoughts, the closer we get to committing the sin. Flee from the temptation as soon as you recognize it ( 2 Tim. 2:22).

2.Recognize your enemy. Understand that this is serious business! You are engaged in a battle for your very soul. There is an enemy, the devil, who “prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” ( 1 Peter 5:8). This enemy will use any temptation to draw you away from God.

3.Resist through Jesus! Go to the Lord and receive mercy and grace in your time of need (Heb. 4:15-16). Remember, you are not alone in your struggle. Satan tries to discourage us through isolation, telling us our temptation is unique. This simply isn’t true ( 1 Cor. 10:13).

4.Give Thanks. In the midst of the struggle, thank God for the opportunity to experience the victory through Him ( Rom. 5:1-5). Thank Him for providing a way of escape.

GOD’S WORD ON TEMPTATION

“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, that you may be able to endure it” ( 1 Cor. 10:13)

The Christian one two three combo!

A careful and honest study of the Word of God reveals very clearly that the Father designed the Christian life to begin by being fully charged with a POWERFUL 1, 2, 3 combination.

For a boxer a fundamental combination like a Left, Right forms a basic attack.  The bible tells us that we are in a mortal fight that is not against flesh & blood but is spiritual in nature.

The Christian Life combination is designed by the Creator himself to meet the challenges He knows we face in our most important battle.

Its combination charged with the love of God packed with Grace & Power for the new life of a new creature.

This combination is more than enough to equip the Christian and counter the 1,2,3 punch which we face in living an overcoming spiritual life and finishing the race that is set before us.
