How Do You Rid Yourself of Temptation

by Diane M. Hoffmann

The title of this post is a question recently sent in to a Christian discussion forum by someone. Many people responded to the sad and desperate plea by giving tons of long doctrinal answers and instructions.

Here's my practical guideline which I contributed to the forum:

Three Practical Ways to Overcome Temptation:

1.Stay in the Word of God, every day - get excited about it.

2.Start a ministry helping others in the church and community. (You'll get so busy you won't have time to struggle.)

3.Be sincere -- God will not be mocked. (Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.)

Three Practical Scriptures to Overcome Temptation:

1 Timothy 6:11
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

2 Timothy 2:22
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Follow this everyday and you shall be a successful overcomer./dmh
