Life's Choices


~1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The Bible clearly warns us that the devil’s ultimate goal is to exploit our weaknesses. If Satan is seeking to devour us, then we must not give him even an inch by placing ourselves in danger of being tempted! If a person struggles with pornography, then he needs to stay off the Internet, adult book stores and friends who indulge in that sin. If someone struggles with shoplifting, he needs to stay away from stores when he is not accompanied by someone who does not shoplift.

It is not the temptation that God condemns but it is succumbing to the actual sin itself.

~James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Just because we are born with a sin nature does not mean that we have to succumb to sin after we are born again. The Word says that we can resist sin. God is faithful and will always provide us with the help that we need when we need it.

~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.
