Show Notes

In today’s episode we’re going to talk about temptation. What is it and how we can overcome it. Temptation is the testing of man's faithfulness and integrity. 

It’s something we want that we don’t need or doing something we know we shouldn't.

Although it’s much easier to blame the devil, not all temptation comes from him. The truth is, because of sin, many of the temptations we face are because of our own carnal desires. 

While being tempted is not a sin, temptation is the devil’s attempt to use our weaknesses against. However, we are not powerless.  We will also take a deeper look at how Jesus overcame temptation and how we can apply these principles to our own lives. 

God never allows us to be tempted beyond what we can take but always provides us with a way out.

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.” God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability. He will provide a way of escape, and keep you, that you may be able to endure.

Thanks for listening.

Let’s keep building!
