ESCAPE FROM TEMPTATION (5)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Escape from temptation

(1 Corinthians 10:13-14 AMP) 
13 No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 

14 Therefore, my beloved, run [keep far, far away] from [any sort of] idolatry [and that includes loving anything more than God, or participating in anything that leads to sin and enslaves the soul]. 

2. Other Scriptures

(Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV) 
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. {29} “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. {30} “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

(Mark 14:38 NKJV) 
“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”


The End ...
