Dealing With Difficulties ‘Temptation’

Dealing with Difficulties Temptation

There is an idea that temptation is only giving into wrong doing {sin} and evil. We can always be tempted, because for instance, we like the look of something or the pleasure we might get from it.

Understanding Grace, {God’s goodness at Christ Expense}, came at a cost to a loving God, who loves us dearly. Then the value we place on ‘Grace’. should be more important to us, than something that might look good, or bring us short lived pleasure and satisfaction.

We have an adversary, whose primary purpose, is to steal us away from our loving God, or make it hard for some to even see there is a God that loves them.

James 1 verse 12: “Blessed is a man {or woman} who endures trials, because when he {or she} passes the test he {or she} will receive the crown of life that He has promised to those that love Him.”

Christ Jesus, Our Lord and Our Friend is our example. Matthew 4 verse 1, shows He put a value on His relationship with His Father and His love for us all, so as not to fall into temptation.

We were sinners, who have been saved by Grace, having put our faith in Christ Jesus as Our Lord and Our Friend; and in the finished work of the cross. Let us also put a great value on His Grace and His Love for us, so that when any temptation comes we can stand in His grace which is always sufficient for us.

Christ Jesus said in John chapter 16 verse 33 “In the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”. When the enemy comes to tempt us to give up hope or become discouraged, we can rise up in faith and face life with confidence. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives us the strength and eternal perspective to face what is coming with good cheer. He is Lord, and never leaves us nor forsakes us!

God Bless.
