Message: Truth About Temptation

Passage: Luke 4:1-13

We all struggle with temptation every day of our lives. It seems like once we beat one temptation, another will come along. Many believe that temptation is a sin. How wrong! Temptation is not a sin. Temptation becomes sin when we act on that opportunity. Even Jesus was tempted, and Jesus understands temptation.

  • The devil tempts when we’ve gone without and tempts with the idea of a shortcut. (Luke 4:3-4)
  • The devil tempts with the idea of compromise. (Luke 4:5-7)
  • The devil tempts with the idea of entitlement. (Luke 4:9-11)

We all can learn from the way Jesus responded to temptation. The devil will attack when you are weak. Be prepared! Prepare your mind in advance before the temptation strikes. Spend time in the Word and in prayer every day. Jesus was prepared ahead of time, and He.conquered temptation.

I’ll leave you with some encouraging scripture.  1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us, “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

Message: God is Faithful Even When We are Tempted

(1 Corinthians 10:13 & Genesis 39)

It’s not if we are tempted that matters, what matters is how we respond. God promises us He will provide us a way out. God may not remove us from that area of temptation, but God promises us we will have what we need to resist. God honors those who dare to say no to sin. 1 Corinthians 10:13 is a solid foundation to build lives on.

If you have fallen into temptation and sinned against God, there’s good news. The Bible in 1 John 1:9 tells us “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Has there ever been a time in your life when you called upon the name of the Lord? The time is now. God is faithful!

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
