Greg Laurie — Why Does God Allow Temptation in the Life of the Believer
How can we stand against the power and deceit of our spiritual adversary? Pastor Greg Laurie says we stand on the authority of God's Word. Pastor Greg points out even Jesus faced temptation from the Devil by quoting Scripture. Get help for your temptations!
Why do we fall into temptation? Pastor Greg Laurie says, many times, we don't fall... we jump! Pastor Greg points out how we often set ourselves up for a fall by being in the wrong place with the wrong crowd.
Everyone gets tempted, but temptation is not a sin unless you give in to it. We can overcome temptation, as Jesus did, by resisting from the start, having our guard up, and knowing the Word of God in our hearts. Strength and dependency on the Lord are the result when we overcome.
