Temptations

Are they all bad? Are they all evil? Are they all spotted easily? I would so no. In appearance many are not coming with a neon flashing light saying I am from your enemy! ! On the contrary because if that were true it would be so much easier to turn and run for your life.

1 Corinthians 10:13

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.


Commentary

As believers, we will be tempted. The idea of temptation relates to how we are attacked or addressed by the world and the forces of evil. A thought, a circumstance, words spoken to you; sometimes it doesn’t take much to cause us to be tempted. Evil strikes at opportunities that make you feel as though you are powerless to defend. God allows you to be tempted that you may hold strongly to Him and show your faithfulness. You are equipped to stand firm which, in some cases, means to flee from temptation. Temptation is not sin, but that is where it leads.
