And the LORD said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.  Ex 33:19

Temptation is the natural tendency to get our needs met, our desires fulfilled, and our identity established, (pride stroked) apart from God’s provision. 

1John 2:16 says, “For all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world.” (NKJV)

In Genesis we find that man became a living being as God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.  Christ’s creative work continues as we accept Christ and He breathes into us spiritual life.  This is a life found through faith in Christ Jesus.  At this point, many Christians stumble and never fully recover.  This comes as sin re-enters our life through our own disobedience.  We discover that as sin separates man from God prior to conversion, so sin separates us from fellowship with God after conversion.

Another of the conflicts within the Christian life is the battle with temptation.  It’s comforting to realize that our Lord himself was “tempted in all things, as we are and yet without sin.  (Heb. 4:15)  It’s also reassuring that 1Cor. 10:13 assures us that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to withstand and yet many Christians have not experienced the truth of this scripture in their lives.  Again, temptation is one of Satan’s tools designed to keep believers from experiencing the abundant life.
