Temptations are life’s train wreckers

Temptations are life’s train wreckers. They attempt to steal your identity and to make you a prisoner of desires and feelings. People who always cooperate with temptation never realize what a strong force has control of their life.

If you don’t attempt to overcome temptation you won’t. Without self-control, temptation rules.

Every time you give in to a temptation you guarantee that it will be back again, even stronger. Instead learn to overcome it!

Before jumping into temptation, count the cost. Is the pleasure worth the pain?

Anybody can give in to temptation, but it takes a courageous hero to resist it and overcome it. Temptation is false advertising–lying desires that tell you a shady behavior will make you happy and get you what you want.

If you act interested in temptation, it will beat you every time. Don’t go there unless you’re sure you really want to go there.

When a temptation is brought into the light and shared with a trusted friend, it loses much of its power. Try it and see!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia."
