Overcoming Temptation: June 9, 2019

Jun 09, 2019   •     •   James 1:13-15

Text: James 1:13-15 (ESV)
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.

Sermon Notes:

  • Temptation is never from God
  • Temptation comes from our own desires
  • Temptation leads to death

Overcome temptation by choosing God first. Run from sin and temptation (2 Timothy 2:22)
