In Times Of Temptations

Key Verse

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Text — 1 Corinthians 6:15-20


No Christian should allow himself or herself to be deceived by Satan into thinking that temptation is seasonal. Fleshly pleasure is a very strong motivation and a powerful tool in the hand of Satan. It is not hard to imagine therefore how he has filled all spheres of human existence with images of seduction, lust, and immorality. Satan does not hide his chief goal of drawing as many souls as possible to hell with him. It is warfare, a battle for the eternal souls of men and women.

Popular culture makes youth particularly open to temptations of fornication and pornography. Most youths feel they cannot exist without social media; and are exposed to lusciousness, nudity and lust-provoking behaviours that are inimical to Christian virtues. You must determine to be holy in order to resist the pull of the world. The Scripture’s counsel remains:  “Flee fornication.”  Run from any scene that is seductive, as Joseph did to overcome the evil passion of Potiphar’s wife.  Christian youth, run to Jesus in prayer and meditation on His word to receive power to overcome.


Christian youth, run to Jesus


With Christ, you can conquer every temptation.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to stand firm at all times. Amen.
