John Bradshaw - The Best Thing You Can Do When You're Tempted
Temptation is a fact of life. You can put yourself where you're less likely to be tempted, but temptation will find you. It has the ability to wear you down. At first you might be strong in the face of a certain sin, but if you're not firm about temptation, you'll weaken, and you'll eventually be overtaken.
James 1:14 says, "But every man is tempted, when he has drawn away of his own lust, and enticed". So, the best thing you can do when temptation comes is to shun it right away. You ought to be resolute about it. When temptation knocks at your door, lock the door. Don't open the door and stand there in the doorway chatting with it. Yield to God in that moment, shun the first approach of sin, and know that the God who dwells in you will give you victory every single time that you claim it. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
