LISTEN NOW! John, Pat, and Chris discuss the importance of not allowing temptation to push you but instead for you to push back temptation. In this abiding moment they share that Christians today because of technology have more opportunity to fall into temptations than they did in previous generations. They continue to discuss how not to long ago television would actually begin and end at a certain time each day. There was no such thing as the 24/7 programming that exists today or the 500 to 1,000 television channels at your disposal. Neither did they have internet and the ability to carry the internet on portable digital devices. In this abiding moment they discuss the temptation and how as Christians we are warned on how to respond to it. Temptation by itself is not sin its how we respond to the temptation. They caution us to walk in humility which is total dependency on God and respect for other people. 1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us that “…God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.” God’s expectation from his Word is that you will be able to bear the temptation. In other words you can stand up, stand against, and push back temptation. And God is faithful to provide a way, an escape to help you and me away from the temptation. Satan does not have any new bag of tricks he wages schemes and has strategic plans designed to tempt you into sin but God is faithful and can empower us by his grace to bear it, push back temptation and He will provide us a way of escape.
