FYI:  Overcoming TEMPTATIONS (part 2)

FYI: Overcoming TEMPTATIONS (part 2)Yesterday, I promised to provide scriptures to help overcome temptation. I stated that the Holy Spirit will help you. This is true. The Lord will help you IF YOU PRAY. BUT at the end of the day, YOU and ONLY YOU HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY of NOT YIELDING to particular temptations. I.E., If you have lusting problem with women, then you probably shouldn’t be going to strip clubs or watching porn on your phone.

Just saying. Anyway, here is a list of scriptures dealing with OVERCOMING temptations. (BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELT!!)

Matthew 26:41 WATCH and PRAY that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
1 Corinthians 7:2 But because of the temptation to SEXUAL IMMORALITY, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.  
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 ESV   Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. (These verses are dealing with ADULTERY).

1 Timothy 6:9 But those who DESIRE TO BE RICH fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

Hebrews 10:26 ESV.  For if we go on SINNING DELIBERATELY after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

Romans 13:14 ESV.  But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and MAKE MO PROVISION for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

James 4:7 ESV   SUBMIT yourselves therefore to God. RESIST the devil, and he will flee from you.

Galatians 5:16 ESV.  But I say, WALK by the Spirit, and you WILL NOT gratify the desires of the flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 ESV    Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

James 4:17 ESV. So whoever KNOWS the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

James 1:14 ESV. But each person is tempted when he is LURED and ENTICED by his own desire.
