Temptation of Christ

Have you ever been tempted, if you said no than chances or you just told a fib? Any way this is not a trick question I am just saying that I catch myself being tempted quit often. I remember when I was a young boy I would be tempted to take something that did not belong to me or maybe tell a little white lie to mom, dad, our my sisters anything to try to stay out of trouble. In school you might be tempted to cheat on a test or to blame something on some else to keep from being sent to the office. At work you might be tempted to take shortcuts to get your work completed on time or you might be tempted to cheat on your spouse, your taxes, or take money off the top that does not belong to you. What I would like you to know is that no matter what is tempting you there is a way of escape so that you do not have to live with it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide a way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it. (NIV)

You know if you have never given your life to Christ then being tempted may not bother you. But once you become one of His followers than the devil will tempt you wanting you to fail. But God will help you and if you take it on yourself to go ahead and do what is tempting you than your farther loves you and He will forgive you. I am not saying that you wont be punished for whatever you have done but you can live with the faith that God will be there for you. What has helped me the most is I have memorized this verse and when I feel that I am being tempted I repeat this verse to myself thus helping me to fight the temptation.
