Self-Control

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:12-23

Focus Verse You are tempted in the same way all other human beings are. God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted any more than you can take. But when you are tempted, God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it

Step One: – I admit that my life is a mess and  I am out of control.

  1. WE WILL BE TEMPTED
    John 16:33I have told you these things, so that you can have peace because of me. In this world you will have trouble. But cheer up! I have won the battle over the world.”

  2. TEMPTATION IS NOT SIN
    1 Corinthians 10:13 You are tempted in the same way all other human beings are. God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted any more than you can take. But when you are tempted, God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it.

  3. TEMPTATION IS A CHOICE
    1 Corinthians 10:23 “Everything is permitted.” But not everything is good for us. Again you say, “Everything is permitted.” But not everything builds us up.

 Temptation doesn’t stop being a problem for us because we make a choice to change. We are tempted because we are human and our nature is sinful.

 

God gives us a choice in recovery to choose to give in to temptation or follow Him.
