Can Christians Stop Sinning – Overcoming Temptation

1 Corinthians 10:13

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”


Reflection:

Do you believe these words of God? You may look at the day ahead of you and say, “I cannot do it.” You may be right. But God can.


You may look at the temptation that you face and say, “It is too much for me!” You are almost certainly correct. But it is not too much for God.


You may look at the sin in your life that you have struggled with for years and say, “It is impossible. I can never free myself from its grip!” That is probably true. But God can.


There is no temptation that God cannot help you overcome. None. Trust in Him today. Think deeply about His strength. Try to measure it. The more you try, the more you will find that it is silly to think that He cannot help you overcome your temptation. Rest in His strength today.


In Christ,


Pastor Yonkman
