Resisting Temptation  July 21, 2019

Resisting Temptation
Junior Level

Resisting Temptation

Have you ever noticed that during the times when it feels like we are lacking that temptation comes much stronger.  During the times when we are going through a trial or a time of pain or suffering.  Those times the devil never fails to bring before us things to tempt us to fall.  Today’s lesson focuses on this and hopefully will encourage us to resist the devil and flee from temptation by allowing GOD to be our source of strength, comfort, and rest.  I pray that it is a blessing to you.

Resisting Temptation

Depravation, I looked this word up in the dictionary just to be able to write to you what it says about this world. 
dep·ri·va·tion noun \ˌde-prə-ˈvā-shən also ˌdē-ˌprī-\
: the state of not having something that people need : the state of being deprived of something...
I recently heard an amazing preacher, preaching and he mentioned this word…Deprivation…It keeps echoing in my mind…over and over…I had never thought about it that much before…how depravity or a feeling of deprivation can sometimes be used by the devil to try to lead us to give in to certain temptations if we are not very careful.  Just the word can cut to the core…and bring tears even when we don’t really know why…
The Apostle Paul’s words keep echoing in my mind as well from Galatians 5:16 “ This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
Deprivation…I guess there are many things, feelings, emotions that we can feel we are deprived of…and if we are living according to our emotions, we can begin to seek to ease that depravity with something or someone…that is when we can get into so much trouble if we are seeking after the wrong kind of comfort.  That is why it is so important for us to remember that we walk by faith.  We do not live according to our emotions, we live by what THE WORD OF GOD says.  So where is the right place to seek that comfort…?   In The LORD, JESUS CHRIST.
“O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”  {Romans 7:24-25}

Doing the right thing is not always going to “Feel” good…I know from experience…when this flesh is hurting, crying out for comfort…in times of loneliness…or suffering…times of rejection…in times of grief…those feelings can last for so long…and maybe we try to put on a happy face and smile and be strong as we go…but there comes a time when the smiles run out…and the heartache can get so intense that we just want to feel better…just for a little while…it’s been so long…so just for a while…to forget our misery.  Those are dangerous times…it’s dangerous because this is when the evil one will come at us with those temptations. 

Amen :O))

God Bless you all,


GOD Bless You.

Triumph to Treachery, by Lisa DeVinney

Grades 3-6 Lesson for Sunday School (July 21, 2019):  The Life of Jesus Christ: Triumph to Treachery

Grades 3-6 for Sunday School: 
The Life of Jesus Christ: Lesson 3

Author’s Notes:  As we continue our series on the life of Christ, we’ll be briefly looking at one more exciting event in Jesus’ life.  But this triumph will be quickly followed by a great turn in public sentiment, as the Jewish people choose to reject Jesus as their Messiah.  Our lesson will focus on what turned those groups of people away from Christ.  But we’ll also consider how God used it as part of His plan to bring salvation to the world.

4. Judas was rewarded with money for betraying Jesus.

5. Judas brought soldiers to the room where Jesus was having supper with the disciples.

Devotional Thoughts:


 Jesus had to suffer rejection so that we could be accepted by His Father.

Jesus had to shed His sinless blood so that ours could be declared clean.

Jesus had to die for us to have eternal life.

Jesus now lives so that we won’t have to die in our sins.
