Bible Verses about Temptation
Since sin has entered into the world through man’s disobedience to God’s command, all are sinners. We can be set free from the punishment of disobedience and save our souls from burning in eternal fire by believing in Jesus. But the Devil still works and he sets trap for God’s children to fall again. The Devil always comes to tempt but we can win because Jesus has already won the battle. We are on the winning side. In temptation when we don’t fall for Devil’s lies, we become strong. Fighting the temptation will make you a greater child of God. Never give up but fight. Use the word of God as Jesus to shut the lies of the Devil.
