Day 11 of our James Bible Study. Let’s look at verses 13-14 and discuss temptation and where it comes from.
When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
Today, use the bible study example you learned on day 6. I’ve given you an example here.
Today is rich. We are not tempted by God. Nope. We are tempted when we are dragged away by our own evil desires. Ouch!
And isn’t that truth? How often do we choose temptation because it feels good in the moment? Isn’t that the perfect couple of verses for the New Year? So many of us are trying to eat healthier, exercise, and working on things that might be temptations to us.
What temptation are you struggling with now, friend? Please comment or share on the Facebook page and let’s pray for one another!
Today’s Homework: Write down your biggest temptations. And then I want you to write out ways you can walk away from the temptations. If you set yourself up with a plan, you will be more likely to stop before you give into those desires next time. Try it. I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Let’s ask God for wisdom and seek ways to safeguard against temptations.
Continue memorizing verses 1-3. Write the verses out today, but skip every other word as you do. Then go back and fill them in. This exercise is harder than it sounds! But it’s great for memorizing!
