How to Resist Temptation

Temptation is a part of life. We will all be tempted to sin at some point. However, we can resist temptation by following the example of Joseph.

When Joseph was tempted by Potiphar’s wife, he refused to sin. He knew that it was more important to be faithful to God than to give in to temptation.

There are a few things we can do to resist temptation:

  • Know God’s Word. The Bible is full of wisdom and guidance on how to live a godly life. When we know God’s Word, we are better equipped to resist temptation.
  • Pray. When we are tempted, we should pray to God for strength and guidance. He will help us to overcome temptation.
  • Get involved in Christian community. Being around other Christians can help us to stay strong in our faith. When we are tempted, we can talk to our Christian friends and family for support.
  • Avoid situations that might lead to temptation. If we know that we are easily tempted in certain situations, we should avoid those situations.

We can all resist temptation. By following the example of Joseph and by applying these principles, we can live a life that is pleasing to God.
