Responding to Trials and Temptations

Evening Service
Feb 8, 2015

When Christians face trials of any kind, temptation is present as well. When we are at our most vulnerable, how can we resist the pull of sin? James reminds us that although temptation comes from the desires inside us, our ability to resist depends on looking outside of ourselves.  To resist temptation effectively, we need to trust in God's goodness and receive His word.

James 1:16-21
