“I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.” 1 John 2:12-13
Though Jesus never sinned, he understands the temptations we face. Resisting temptation is difficult for some Christians. Babies or children in Christ are saved, but they still have the propensity to sin. Young men and young women defeat the temptation of sin. Sometimes they struggle, but they overcome their temptations. Fathers and mothers live like Christ and lead others to do the same. So what will you do, and who will you become? I encourage to “fight the good fight” against sin and grow up in your faith. Then you can help others become mature!
What is your level of spiritual maturity? How do you overcome temptation?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that some temptations are harder to resist than others. Give me the strength to overcome every temptation I face. In Jesus name, amen.
