Posts Tagged ‘Suffering Temptations’

Every responsible adult is tempted. Some enjoy the possible scene satan brings across their mind (and whether they ever commit the act or not) their delight in mental wickedness marks them. They are sinners. Similar temptations flash before the mind of redeemed souls and they turn from them. The fact that they did not harbor nor enjoy such filth marks them. They are saints. “But I’m so well saved/sanctified that I’m not tempted.” Wrong. Christ Himself was tempted (Heb 4.14). He did not enjoy temptation but suffered (Heb 2.18) and saints, being like Christ, also suffer such.
