BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF - ROMANS 16:19-20A

Be honest with yourself and don’t try to pass a religious ‘exam’ like a lot of people in the church do, ignoring reality in the process. There are Christians that have sexual thoughts and deny them in order to appear holy.  Sexual thoughts are a reality of life, just like appetite. Having sexual thoughts does not mean you are a sexual pervert.

 

The Bible says Jesus was tempted in all points such as we are, yet without sin. Did Jesus face seduction? I can tell you he did, but did he fall for seduction? NO. Was Jesus tempted to steal? Yes.

 

Did he steal? NO. Was Jesus tempted to fornicate? Yes, because the scripture says he was tempted in all points as we are. If you have ever been tempted to fornicate and that scripture is correct, Jesus was tempted like you. Have you ever been tempted to lose your temper? That is normal; Jesus too was tempted to lose His temper. This is no speculation, it is Bible truth. The bible says in Hebrews 4:15

“For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

 You must get your truths about Jesus Christ from the Bible. The Bible says Jesus was tempted in all points, as we are. The only difference is that we fall; He did not fall. Denying temptation is not going to give you victory, it is learning how to overcome it that will give you victory.

 

PRAYER: Lord, give me the strength to overcome the temptations I face and not deny them just like you have shown me in your Word in Jesus’ name. Amen!
