The Process of Temptation

In His Presence: Each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.  Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren (James 1:14-16).

The key characteristic of temptation is that it is achieved by virtue of deception. Satan’s job is to tempt you, to solicit you away from God. Paul said: “I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).  Satan is a chameleon, taking on any shape or size necessary to take our attention away from Christ.

One Minute Please

Once you make the decision to act contrary to the will and Word of God you have sinned.
