Title: Temptation

  • By Alfred Toole

Trial vs Temptation
  • Trials are sent by God to cause us to stand.
    Temptation to sin is sent by the devil to cause
    us to stumble. One is meant for our maturity. The
    other is meant for our misery. James used this
    word interchangeably. While God does not cause
    both kinds, God allows both kinds, and He will
    use both to make us more like Jesus.

2 Corinthians 2.11
James 1.14-15
  • Desire
  • Deception
  • Disobedience
  • Death

Process of Sin
  • Desire (How you handle your desire, satisfying
    inside / outside of Gods will)
  • Deception (Attracts Hides Drawn away by bait
    on a hook, taken away from God)
  • Disobedience (Reject Gods will for you)
  • Death (Sin kills it separates)

Psalm 119.105

2 Samuel 12.7-10
Breaking the Cycle
  • Desire (Take your eyes off the bait, focus on
    God Colossians 3.1-4, Hebrews 12.1-3,
    Philippians 4.8)
  • Deception (Truth John 17.17, Ephesians 5.8-17, 1
    John 1.9)
  • Disobedience (Obey John 15.10, Galatians
  • Death (Draw Near to God James 4.7-8, Hebrews
  • Desire (Take your eyes off the bait, focus on
    God Colossians 3.1-4, Hebrews 12.1-3,
    Philippians 4.8)

    John 1.9)
  • Disobedience (Obey John 15.10, Galatians
  • Death (Draw Near to God James 4.7-8, Hebrews

Avoiding Relapse
  • Step 1. We admit that we are powerless over our
    addiction and that our lives have become
    unmanageable....this step is the most
    important. It allows me to honestly evaluate my
    life and how my addiction affects it. It says
    that when I rely on my own power to stay clean, I
    fail. It also says that no matter how much
    control I think I have, or how good things are in
    life, I will not be able to use drugs or alcohol
    and have a good outcome. In summing it up, it
    means, "I will always battle addiction." So I
    must not be fooled into thinking that things are
    any other way.

Avoiding Relapse
  • Step 2. We came to believe that a power greater
    than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
    ..this step is the beginning of faith based
    living. Believing that God can change me into
    something more than what my sinful nature has
    allowed me to become. Believing that no matter
    how crafty Satan is, God is more powerful.After
    an honest assessment of my problems in Step 1,
    Step 2 is having a desire to change, and trusting
    that God can and will help if I seek him.

Avoiding Relapse
  • Step 3. Making a decision to turn my will and my
    life over to the care of God. ..this is self
    explanatory, although in the secular program God
    can be many things. For me this is Baptism and
    the pledge of a good conscience towards God. Like
    you read about in 1 Peter 318-21.

Avoiding Relapse
  • 1. Stay away from drugs and alcohol and anyone
    that is associated with the lifestyle. 2. Work a
    program of recovery (going to meetings, church,
    serving others, advancing your life for the
    better).3. Basically, I try to stay too busy to
    give Satan opportunity to slip in temptations.4.
    Have a mentor or someone that you can share
    personal struggles with. 5. You are never
    healed. Rather, in a process of healing and
    growing. (means stay open-minded and don't think
    you know it all). 6. Remain humble 7. Use gifts
    to serve others (1 peter 410)

How to Protect it.
  • Ask for help
  • Be content in God
  • Come to meetings and begin to share
  • Draw near to God when you struggle
  • Encourage honesty in your life
  • Find a mentor and become a disciple
  • Get rid of friends who tempt you
  • Have a strategy for when tempted
  • Involve yourself in something else
  • Keep the word in your heart
  • Learn different ways to say NO
  • Make time to arm yourself
  • Notify friends before you struggle
  • Play the tape forward to deal with struggles
  • Remove yourself from high-risk situations
  • See yourself resisting sin

Types of Sponsors

    their phone number.

    like to spend time with talking about recovery.
    They can be a sounding board. They can help you
    understand the format of meetings. They can call
    you and motivate you to go to meetings. They can
    also act as an early warning system to help you
    recognize if you're in denial, or if you're in
    the early stages of emotional relapse.

    12 steps.
