Have you ever been tempted…today? Each of us is guaranteed temptation, so let’s examine it a little more closely. Temptation is not sin; however, pursuing the satisfaction of our desires apart from God in the temptation is sin (1 John 2:16). In fact, it is impossible to be tempted without knowing what is right. That’s why we must remember that neither the bait nor its subsequent sin ever satisfies, but God always does (1 John 2:17).
When you are tempted to sin, God will always provide a way out. The Apostle Paul said, “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). When faced with temptation, seek God’s pathway out. Follow His light to Restoration Road.
