Overcoming Temptation


Dealing with Temptation

Being a follower of Jesus Christ is not easy.  Even though we are forgiven of all our sins and have eternal life, we still confronted with temptation.  Why do we still deal with temptation even after we are saved?

A World of Sin

We live in a world that is full of sin.  Before we knew Christ, it was so easy to yield to the world’s enticements and indulge in its sins.  However, when we came to accept Jesus as our Savior, we recognized that living the sinful life did not satisfy our soul.  That true satisfaction came only when we live our lives according to God’s will instead of our own.

The Pressure of Temptation

One would think that after becoming a believer, it would be much easier to resist the urge to sin.  Unfortunately, the lure of temptation becomes even more difficult to resist when one is a believer.  Why is this the case and where can a follower of Christ find the tools needed to resist temptation?

How to Resist Temptation

We find the answer to this problem in this devotional from The NIV Once a Day Devotional For Men.  In this YouTube video, I read from the devotional the various things we can do as followers of God to resist temptation and to stand firm in our faith.  Please share your thoughts and comments on our YouTube channel.  If you like what you hear, please subscribe to our channel.  May the Lord bless you always.
