THEME: The Mystery of Temptation
TOPIC: Overcoming Temptation (Be born again)
TEXTUAL FOCUS: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” –
(James 1:14, KJV)
POINTS OF EMPHASIS
Most often than not, external problems are solved by internal means, and internal problems by external means. For instance, finding a cure to the visible symptoms of cold can only be possible when you take in drugs. Keeping yourself warm won’t help unless you deal with the issue internally. And finding a relief to internal problem I hunger must be solved by the use of the external resource of food.
In the same vein, there’s a way to overcome temptation and the best way is not in earthly or worldly means. Paul said, the evil that I do not want to do, that I do but the good that I want to do, that I do not, who shall deliver me from the body of sin?
However, his victory came as he opened up his mind to obey the law of the Lord. If you’re ever going to overcome temptation no matter the degree, you must work on your inner man.
Without a genuine conversion, that is, being born again, you’ll keep falling into temptation. Going to church doesn’t make you born again, you’re born again when there’s a great difference in the way you used to live in the past and now that you’re a child of God.
Are you born again? Is your life now influenced by the Spirit and word of God? If not, say this salvation prayer…
“Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I disobey Your will. Forgive me all my sins. Today I confess that Jesus is the Lord of my life and I believe that God has raised Him from the dead. Enter into my life, save me and deliver me from the power of sin, in Jesus name I pray.
The first way to overcoming temptation is to be born again.
Father, empower me to live a victorious life throughout my pilgrimage on earth in Jesus name.
I call upon the name of the Lord, I shall be saved.
