Whenever a person comes to know God through salvation in Jesus Christ, a great struggle begins. Temptation is the number one weapon of darkness. The bible tells us to resist temptation in any form. The Spirit of God will help us to stand against every temptation.
1 Corinthians 10:6-13 — We must be on guard so that we never get caught up in wanting our own way as our ancestors did. And we must not turn our religion into a circus as they did—“First the people partied, then they threw a dance.” We must not be sexually promiscuous—they paid for that, remember, with 23,000 deaths in one day! We must never try to get Christ to serve us instead of us serving him; they tried it, and God launched an epidemic of poisonous snakes. We must be careful not to stir up discontent; discontent destroyed them. These are all warning markers—danger!—in our history books, written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel—they at the beginning, we at the end—and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don’t be so naive and self-confident. You’re not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. Cultivate God-confidence. No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.
1 Corinthians 6:12 — All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be dominated by anything.
