Christianity is a religion that gives hope and salvation, but also attracts some tough circumstances and temptations – which will eventually result to positive benefits.
Paul shared his personal experience of Christianity and said, “… Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.
Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fasting often, in cold and nakedness” (2 Corinthians 11:22-27).
Lesson on Christianity and Temptation
Children of God may face trials and persecutions for their faith, but God will help them overcome all.
Christ promised victory for his saints and said,
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Christ’s affirmative statement of victory should be resounding in every Christian’s mind.
Trials, temptations, and persecutions would remain temporal in our lives. No matter how tough a situation may appear, we will still overcome!
Meanwhile, Satan will try whatever he can in an attempt to break our confidence.
His efforts may include an attack on our testimonies; he may instigate people to abuse us, and he may aim at hurting us emotionally.
Meanwhile, our steadfastness in Jesus Christ is very important.
Jehovah will not allow our tears to go unaccounted for.
He will reward our endurance, and he will decorate our lives with honor. Steadfast Christians will receive God’s good rewards from this earth to heaven.
Prayer on Christianity and Temptation
Dear God, please give me your strength to remain a steadfast Christian.
Enable me to keep irresistible faith in time of trial, temptation, and persecution. Strengthen my mind not to fall into Satan’s temptations.
Empower me through your Holy Spirit to live an acceptable life before you always, so that I can receive your benefits in this world and in heaven also.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
