How to Deal with Temptation as a Christian (How to Resist Temptation)

– Hi everyone and welcome
to Rhoades24eva, I’m Terri. – And I’m Kyle. – In this video we’re gonna talk about how to deal with
temptation as a Christian. Basically what we’re gonna do is share some strategies that we believe will be beneficial to you
that you can implement along with some accompanying Bible verses to help you resist temptation. – The first thing is to identify
what your temptations are. Now you do this by making
a list by asking yourself the question what am
I most susceptible to? Now you can have one thing or
you can have multiple things, but the goal is to be honest with yourself about what you’re struggling with. – The next thing to do is
acknowledge that you cannot do this on your own and you need the help of your Heavenly Father. You have to surrender this
at the foot of his cross. Go to God in prayer and just
throw your hands up and say, “Father, I need your help.” – Another thing you can
do is remove triggers, whether they be people, places, or things to keep you from stumbling. For example, if you’re
dealing with eating fast food or junk food, you can
remove it from your house so that way it’s out of your sphere. Or if you’re dealing with pornography, you can install apps both on
your phone and your computer to help block those sites. The next action step is
to memorize Bible verses that speak directly to your temptation. In the Bible we’re reminded
that the word of God is alive and active and sharper
than any double-edged sword. When dealing with
temptation you want to use the word of God as your weapon. – The next thing is to find
an accountability partner that will make sure you
are keeping your word. This is someone who is not
only going to challenge you, but they’re going to encourage you. This is also the same
person that you can trust, that you can speak with
honestly and know that they’re not going to go
and share your business with anyone else, and this person should be praying with you and praying for you. An accountability partner
is crucial in this process of fighting those temptations. The next thing to
remember is that there is – Always a way out.
– Always a way out. In the Bible it tells us
that God will never allow us to be tempted more than we can bear. – So guys, which Bible verses
