Temptation is a test on whether I will listen and follow Jesus or give in to my desires. It’s one of the ways that God grows me but it requires that I be astute in knowing how my enemy works and how to deal with him, my carnal desires, and the world. I need not fear temptation and the fact that I’m tempted doesn’t mean I’ve sinned. I need to learn how to overcome temptation. Jesus was tempted in every way but he never compromised, not even once. How can I too follow his example? What do I need to know and understand so that I can exercise my faith like Jesus did? Jesus wants to teach me how. Let’s talk about it.
