14LHDVD7-6 - Nickie Pinson - AVOIDING TEMPTATIONS TO SIN - Donation $6.00 - As long as people are breathing there has to be repentance. The thing to do is to have preventive measures regarding temptations to sin. We are all tempted by the devil, by others, the world, and our own lusts. God wants us to learn how to overcome temptation to sin. 1 Corinthians 6:9 The unrighteous are those who practice sin, those who make excuses, defend what they have done, refuse to repent, are hypocrites … they shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Unless we want to be of the devil we must 1) Avoid temptations. “And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.” God is able to keep us from being tempted if we pray earnestly that He will deliver us from the devil’s power, snares, deceptions, the temptations. If you know you have a problem in an area, stay away from it. God’s government, great power and glory will be manifested when we overcome sin. 2) Have faith that we will not fail the Lord this day. Believe that God is for you and wants you and your family to make Heaven. Personal ministry follows this teaching.
