Series: James: The How-To of Discipleship
How do we deal with temptations? In preparing for temptations: 1. Fill up yourself with godly things; 2. Avoid tempting situations; 3. Die to yourself; 4. Pray for help; 5. Nurture a close Christian friend; and 6. Anticipate tempting situations. In resisting temptations: 1. Flee, run; 2. When in doubt, don't do it; 3. Pray for strength; 4. Resist with the Bible; 5. Friends pray for us; and 6. Restore gently. There are specific things you can do if you want to. Who's will will you follow? God has your best interest in mind. Trust Him!
