Overcoming Temptation Overview
Lesson 1: What is Temptation?
Bible: I Corinthians 10:13, Psalm 119:11, Galatians 5:19-21
Description: Temptations are character and spiritual tests that are a part of life, but God is faithful and will always help us to overcome them.
Lesson 2: Man’s Strength vs God’s Strength
Bible: Matthew 26:41, I Thessalonians 5:22, Judges 16:1-30
Lesson Description: We do not have the strength to resist temptations by ourselves. God gives us His power and strength to resist and overcome temptations as we trust Him.
Lesson 3: Resist the Devil
Bible: James 4:7, James 1:12, Matthew 6:9-13
Lesson Description: When resisting temptations, sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is just be still. Just stand. Don’t sit down or move around; just stand firm on the word and promises of God and in so doing, you will wear the devil out, and he will flee from you.
Lesson 4: Influence
Bible: Corinthians 15:33, Proverbs 22:24-25, Micah 7:2-3, I Timothy 4:12
Lesson Description: Influence is a powerful thing. Good influence is awesome, but negative influence can be detrimental on so many levels. Influence does not come from just our friends. We are influenced by our family, the TV, the internet, social media, and the list goes on. Therefore, it is critical that we allow God’s word to shape our lives and be the compass that directs us.
Lesson 5: Don’t Give Up
Bible: Nehemiah 4:1-9, 15-18, 6:15, 2 Chronicles 36:14-20, Philippians 4:13
Lesson Description: Remember, that whatever we do in this life, whatever we try to accomplish, and yes, even when we are tempted to give up, God is always with us.
Lesson 6: Resisting Laziness
Bible: Proverbs 20:13, Proverbs 26:13-15, I Peter 5:8-11
Lesson Description: Life can be complicated at times, and undoubtedly we will have moments that will make us want to lie down and go to sleep just so that we don’t have to deal with the frustration, the disappointment and the pressures of life. If we’re not careful, we can become content, which may then turn into laziness. But the God of all grace who has called us to His eternal glory in Christ will HIMSELF restore and strengthen us and give us power to resist the temptation to be lazy.
