How To Overcome Temptation

Read: Revelation 2:12-17

Have you ever felt like the temptation of sin is pointless? In the moment, we find ourselves faced with a decision. Do I do what I know Jesus would want me to do? Sometimes it might feel like giving into temptation is worth it. If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re not alone. We have all been there. We live in a world filled with temptation all around us, and that makes it so easy for us to lose sight of Jesus.  We feel tempted to give in or even forget all about Jesus. However, the Bible tells us specifically that resisting or “overcoming” temptation is worth it in the long run.

Resisting temptation sets us apart from the world we live in, just as it will set us apart on the day we meet Jesus face-to-face. This means that it’s definitely not easy to resist temptation because the rest of the world indulges in it. But, the good news is that there is hope. In the moments when we are tempted to sin, we have to remind ourselves that Jesus only wants the best for us. The knowledge that Jesus has something greater in store for us in resistance can give us the strength to walk away. Jesus conquered death and with Him, we will conquer temptation.

Reflect:

  • What temptations do you face daily? What is something you can do today to help yourself resist recurring temptation?
  • Do you often think that giving into temptation will be better than what Jesus has in store for you? Why or why not?
  • Do you question Jesus’s ability to help you overcome temptation in your life? Why or why not?
