1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

Temptation

Temptation

Temptation

the act of tempting; an attempt to lure someone into doing wrong

TEMPTATION Broadly defined, temptation is the enticement to do evil. Satan is the tempter (Matt. 4:3; 1 Thess. 3:5). Beginning with Eve, Satan successfully tempted Adam, Cain, Abraham, and David to sin. He was less successful with Job, and Jesus was “tested in every way as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15 HCSB)

James explains that God cannot be tempted by evil, and He does not tempt anyone (James 1:13). Temptation may be for the purpose of destroying a person through sin leading to death and hell. This is Satan’s intent. God may allow testing for the purpose of bringing forth faith and patience, which ultimately honor Him, as in the case of Job. James further explains that a blessing awaits the one who endures temptation (James 1:12).

James describes the mechanism of temptation. “Each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires” (James 1:14

The origin of the temptation is attributed to fallen human nature (Rom. 6:6; Eph. 4:22; Col. 3:9; and 2 Cor. 5:17).

Romans 6.6
Read them from the screen
Romans 6:6 NKJV
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
Romans 6:6 NKJV
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
Ephesians 4:22 NKJV
that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
Colossians 3:9 NKJV
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Please Tell Somebody I AM No Longer A Slave
Well How Do you know? The Old Man has passed away...
2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Next James uses a metaphor, that of a woman bearing children, to paint a terrible picture. Once a person has been drawn away by his own desire, desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. Temptation is not sin; yielding to temptation is. Jesus said that cherishing adultery in thought is to commit adultery (Matt. 5:28).

Matthew 5:28 NLT
But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
MATTHEW
Any brand Newbians up here!!
new praise, new consecration, new vision for my family, new direction.. Can somebody bless him for New Has Come....
II. Concerning Temptation:

Next James uses a metaphor, that of a woman bearing children, to paint a terrible picture. Once a person has been drawn away by his own desire, desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. Temptation is not sin; yielding to temptation is.

Matthew 5:27–28 NKJV
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Matthew 5.

When the full cycle is completed, sin in turn brings forth death

1 Corinthians 10:13 GW
There isn’t any temptation that you have experienced which is unusual for humans. God, who faithfully keeps his promises, will not allow you to be tempted beyond your power to resist. But when you are tempted, he will also give you the ability to endure the temptation as your way of escape.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The Message
No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.
Point #1 The Temptations In Your Life Are no Different than what others experience
Point #2 but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;
but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;
Point #3 When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
3. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
