The Science of Temptation, Part 2
There is a plan in place to hurt you and it will kill you if it can.
That sobering idea is the primary reason for this two-part series on temptation that concludes today: The Science of Temptation.
Temptation comes at you with a structure, a strategy, even a science.
This series asks: What is your plan to fight the temptation you face?
For, while temptation itself is not sin, it wants to lead you to sin and, then, to death:
For the wages of sin is death – Romans 6:23
Three questions posed by Jesus’ temptation:
1. What do you want more than you want God?
2. Whom do you trust?
3. What will you trade for your soul?
The Three-Point Shield in the Face of Temptation
1. “It is written…” The activated power of the Word of God in our lives.
2. The faithfulness of God
1 Corinthians 10:13
3. The power of rescuing grace
