“Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” -Matthew 26:41

A prayer when facing temptation…

Scripture at Sunrise 5.30.2011

“Since we have these promises, beloved,Β let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of bodyΒ and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.” -2 Corinthians 7:1

When we have trusted in Christ, we are declared completely clean before God, but it is necessary to daily cleanse ourselves from inward and outward sin.

Since we have these promises. What promises? Look just before that in chapter 6:16-18…
>I will dwell in you.
>I will walk with them. (Hebrews 13:5- He’s always with us.)
>I will be their God. They shall be My people.
>I will be a Father to you.

If He’s in you and with you, that should make a difference in how you live your life.

Your testimony effects others. Remember whatΒ GandhiΒ said, “I love your Christ, but I don’t like your Christians.” Your character and conduct will reflect your relationship with Jesus Christ.

So, how do you take a stand against temptation?
1)Possess the promises of God. Get in the Word! Claim His promises. Hide His Word in your heart so sin won’t contaminate you.
Romans 6, Psalm 119, Leviticus 26:12
(If God is with me, how couldΒ I go there?)
2)Cleanse yourselves.
1 John 1:9- Confess your sins. Be killing sin or sin will be killing you. Make right choices, which starts in your mind.
3)Grow up spiritually.
Hebrews 5:11-6:1, Galatians 5:19-25
As the Word grows in you, you’re growing spiritually.

Do others see Jesus in you…or do others see youΒ in you?
