Gateways of Temptation (James 1:12-16)Greg Taylor, February 26, 2012
Part of the A Year of Living Christ.
In #21 in a series called, Living Christ, Greg Taylor speaks personally about temptation and calls each one of us to think personally and confess to God and accountability partners the gateways of temptation in our lives.
12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. (ESV)
