Proverbs: Be wise – God’s Wisdom for living in 2019 – Resisting Temptation (Part 1)
Proverbs 5:21-22; 8:13; 16:5-6 & 28:13-14
Temptation surrounds us all the time. We are all tempted in many ways. Temptation is not sin, but if we do not resist it, it will lead to sin and sin will destroy us and our relationship with God.
Here Jon gives two ways to resist temptation – fear the Lord and have fellowship with Him. Through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided (Proverbs 16:6). Temptation can be resisted by being in love with God. If we love God we will be intimate with Him and not intimate with sin.
