GOD IS FAITHFUL

1 CORINTHIANS 10:13

 

WHAT IS TEMPTATION?

 

3 WORDS TO HELP US UNDERSTAND …

 

TEMPTATION …

“TEMPTATION CAN BE CLEARLY DEFINED AS AN ENTICEMENT OF OUR NATURAL, GOD-GIVEN DESIRES TO GO BEYOND GOD-GIVEN BOUNDARIES.”

STANLEY

 

TRIALS …

PERIODS OF TESTING THAT GOD USES TO STRENGTHEN US

 

JAMES 1:2-3,12

 

TEST …

“LIFE IS FULL OF TEST AND EVERY TEST POTENTIATES A TEMPTATION … TEMPTATION IS AN INWARD SOLICITATION RESULTING FROM THE OUTWARD TEST.”

McARTHUR

 

7 WORDS TO UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS …

 

THOUGHT … IMAGINATION … MEDITATION … WILL … CHOICE … CONSENT … SIN …

 

HOW DO WE OVERCOME TEMPTATION?

 

KNOW SOMETHING:

 

TEMPTATION IS COMMON TO MAN …

 

BELIEVE SOMETHING:

 

IT IS PURPOSEFUL … “GOD IS FAITHFUL”

JAMES 1:13

 

IT IS POWERFUL … “BUT WITH THE TEMPTATION WILL PROVIDE THE WAY OF ESCAPE …”

 

OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S FAITHFULNESS?

 

LAMENTATIONS 3:22-23

 

“FLEE” Vv.14

 

APPLICATION:

 

AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

WHERE GRACE AND SUFFERING MEET

YOU HAVE SHOWN ME YOUR LOVE

THROUGH THE JUDGEMENT YOU RECEIVED

 

AND YOU WON MY HEART

YES, YOU’VE WON MY HEART

 

NOW I CAN

TRADE THE ASHES FOR BEAUTY

AND WEAR FORGIVENESS LIKE A CROWN

COMING TO KISS THE FEET OF MERCY

I LAY EVERY BURDEN DOWN

AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

 

AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

WHERE I AM MADE COMPLETE

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME LIFE

THROUGH THE DEATH YOU BORE FOR ME

I AM LAYING EVERY BURDEN DOWN

I AM LAYING EVERY BURDEN DOWN

AMEN
