A WAY OUT: ALWAYS A WAY OUT
—Mike Teel, Pastor
I Corinthians 10:12-13
12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it.
Every time there is a temptation, God will always give us a way out.
Temptation is anything that promises satisfaction at the cost of obedience to God.
FOUR TRUTHS ABOUT TEMPTATION
1. IT'S NOT A SIN TO BE TEMPTED.
One of our enemy’s tactics is to heap false guilt on us
2. YOU ARE NEVER ABOVE TEMPTATION.
I Corinthians 10:12
3. GOD WILL NEVER TEMPT YOU.
God will test you, but He is holy and is not tempted nor does He tempt us.
EVERY TEMPTATION IS AN INVITATION TO DEPEND ON CHRIST.
4. THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT.
I Corinthians 10:13
I John 1:9
LIVE IT OUT
What temptation is kicking you?
What do you need to do today to begin to look for a way out?
Do you have the power of Christ working in you?
