How we are Tempted and How we Give In

Psalms 1 1 Blessed is the manwho walks not inthe counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD,  and on his law he meditates day and night.

Our new pastor BB shared to us how we could succumb to SIN.

1. Don’t walk in the area of sin and weakness. Here BB is enticed from the look of the kare-kare.

2.Don’t stand in the area where you would most likely be tempted. RUN AWAY BB!!!

3. Once you come near, you tend to walk, stand and lastly sit in and succumb to the temptation.

BB’s three steps to avoid temptation is great but we must also remember that the power to overcome the temptation and sin is through the power of Christ. We are already made victorious over sin through Christ’s death and resurrection and God gave us His grace the Holy Spirit to empower us to say NO to ungodliness.

Romans 8:3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
