“Temptation!” Pastor Dennis Sallas 6/28/2015

Listen to Sermon[MP3, 18MB]


No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And God is faithful:  he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.  (1 Corinthians 10{13)

Temptation comes from our own desires  (2 Samuel 11:1-4) (2 Timothy 2:22)

but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death.  (James 1:14-15)

Temptation comes from Satan and others  (Genesis 3:1, 6-7) (Exodus 32:21-24)

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.  (Matthew 4:1)

God does not tempt but provides a way out  (Luke 22:31) (1 Peter 5:8-11

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,  for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.  (Matthew 11:28-30)
