Billy Graham Devotions 20 October 2019 – Victory Over Temptation

TODAY’S TOPIC: VICTORY OVER TEMPTATION

Key Verse: . . . tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope; and hope maketh not ashamed . . . —Romans 5:3–5

God never promised to remove temptation from us, for even Christ was subject to it. The Bible says that “He was tested in all things, like as we, yet without sin.” There is no good reason why you should seek to escape, for such times of testing have beneficial effects. There is a sense of achievement and assurance that results from victory over temptation that cannot come to us otherwise.

Temptation shows what people really are. It does not make us Christian or un-Christian. It does make the Christian stronger and causes him to discover resources of power. You can benefit from what might be a tragedy, if you will only discover that in just such a time of temptation, Christ can become more real to you than ever, and His salvation will become more meaningful.
