What the Bible teaches and warns us about temptation

Satan and his demons stalk the path of every believer, offering all manner of incitements to lure the Christian away from an obedient and faithful walk with Christ. No one is exempt from satanic attacks, and no one is completely successful in countering them, but some Christians succumb to temptation so often that they see no hope for victory. They give up and give in without a struggle.

This is an unfortunate condition, born out of despair, for it will blind the believer to the marvelous provision God has made for overcoming temptation. Here we would like to share some verses from the Holy Bible to help you to understand what the Word of God teaches and warns us about temptation.

Matthew 26:41 – Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 

Mark 14:38 – Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Luke 22:40 – And when he came to the place, he said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation. 

1 Corinthians 10:13 – No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.  

Galatians 5:17 – For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.

James 1:13 – Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
