World of temptations

"…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.” (NIV) 1 Corinthians 10:13


As Christians temptations are bound to come our way in our lives. We can’t overlook that fact. However it is comforting to know that our God is a just God and he will always provide an escape. The question is do we listen in times like this?

When faced with challenges, we allow the challenge to consume us so much so that we forget the Power of the God we serve and His promises to us in His word. We refuse to read the Bible and even fellowship with brethren during these challenging times. Surprising enough, our escape route or comfort is in the fellowship of brethren. As a matter of fact most of these challenges can easily be solved if we get someone “faithful” to talk to. It is in light with this that God admonishes us not to forsake the fellowship of believers (church), Heb. 11:25.

Darrel is a young handsome man who got involve in a sexual relationship with Tori. They were both Christians but their relationship was fuelled by peer pressure. It all started when Darrel realized that all of his male friends had girlfriends and they were engaging in sex before marriage. Darrel thought he could make the difference by dating but he would not engage in sex before marriage. So he started dating Tori, who he had been admiring for some time in the church. Temptations for sex began to rise to the extent that Darrel finally succumbed to it. Darrel and Tori became disappointed and ashamed after the incident. The guilt and disappointment began to weigh on them to the extent that they stopped fellowshipping with brethren. But Darrel took a bold step by asking the Holy Spirit for help. He confined in one trustworthy Christian brother who became a great support to them. This helped Darrel and Tori to break off their sexual relationship because they realised they could not stand the temptation to have sex and at the same time be a faithful Christian.

Darrel took God seriously and ran from temptation that would have entrapped him and hindered his walk with Christ. And we can also do the same.

HYMN: Are you washed in the Blood!

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain; Are you washed in the blood,

In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?

Are your garments spotless?

Are they white as snow?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
