Relationship Goals: Temptation-Busting


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


Key Point #1: Look for the Way Out

12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. 13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
(1 Corinthians 10:12-13, NLT)


Key Point #2: Stay Alert

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8, NLT)


Key Poinst #3: Resist & Submit

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7, NIV)

Key Point #4: Put on Your Spiritual Armor

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
(Ephesians 6:11-12, NIV)
