Luke {Week 4} ~ Living Like Jesus… responding to temptation

 Do you ever feel like Jesus is some far-away God, and has no idea what you’re going through?  Think again…

 

{If you cannot see this video, you can view it here.}

 

Are you struggling with temptation in your life this week?  Remember that:

1.  Jesus understands what you’re going through.

{Hebrews 4:15} “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.”

 

2. Don’t be caught off guard… we can expect temptation in this world.

{John 16:33} “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

 

3.  Be prepared for when temptation comes!

{Psalm 119:11} “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

 

4.  God will provide a way out.

{1 Corinthians 10:13} “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

 

No, Jesus is not an untouchable God.  Rather, He is One who has experienced life as fully God yet fully man, and can empathize with us in our weaknesses.  What a compassionate, loving Savior! 

 

How can you LIVE {more} LIKE JESUS as you respond to temptation in your own life this week?

 

At His feet,

    Demetria – always love hearing from you! You are such an encouragement to me! :)

  6. I can not tell you how much my husband and I needed this lesson this week! In fact, I wrote all the points and verses out on a large notecard for quick referencing. Thank you so much for all of these! I’ve been following along since the beginning. I’ve added this to my normal Bible reading and have been so uplifted by it!
    I can’t thank you enough!

  7. Is this a book that can be bought? If so, where do I go to to buy it? I would really like to do this study.
