Dig a little deeper into the Word with Pastor Petie.

Monday, May 03 2021

Nasah (Hebrew) & Peirazo (Greek). Both words carry a wide range of meaning that can be translated as either “temptation” or “testing.” In temptation, the word points to an enticement to do evil, or also serves both as a kind of test of the depth and strength of our faith, and as an opportunity to hone our skills and deepen and purify our FAITH by God’s grace. But in testing the connotation is of something that proves our character and shows the depth or integrity of our commitment to God.
 

TEMPTATION comes from the LURE of our own evil desires. These evil desires lead to evil actions, and evil actions lead to death. James 1:14,15.

Pretend you’re a lean, mean, fighting, eating, shark machine. Being gigantic, you go wherever you want and eat whatever you can gather into your wide jaws. Gliding fearlessly through the deep, you spot a delicious morsel just ahead and above. So, you grab it in one big swallow. Then wham! You feel the hook. TEMPTATIONS like stealing, lying, smoking, drinking alcohol, gossiping, and other “tasty morsels” may seem OK, but they come with hooks. So, when you spot something that looks good but you think it may be bad, or you’re not sure, don’t take the bait. Leave it alone and “swim” away as fast as you can. SAFE AT LAST! DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO. 2x Jesus delivers from evil.
