Christians and Temptation

All Christians get tempted at some point or another.  Men and women tend to get tempted by different things but we are all human and none of us can escape temptation.  It is wrong to continue falling into the same temptations or make excesses for sins, and when we give into temptation or sin we must ask for Gods strength and forgiveness.  It’s important to ask for Gods strength as soon as possible or sin can end up having a bad snowball effect.

We need to avoid sins and tempting situations as much as we can, but we can’t completely close our eyes to these things either.  We need to know what’s out there and ask God for his protection.  We must also forgive others when they sin against us.  If we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive us.   As Christians we also can’t look down on others for sinning because it’s something every single person does.  Christians are not perfect and they make mistakes like anybody else.  We also can’t judge others for their sins because only God has that right.

It can be easy to feel bad and guilty when we sin, but we shouldn’t let those feelings get the best of us.  We shouldn’t feel that we’re not worthy of forgiveness either.  God is a forgiving God, you just have to ask for it.  None of us truly deserve forgiveness but it’s a gift that God has given us out of love.  Remember, even Jesus was tempted when we lived in our world.
