Myth: Christians Don't Get Tempted

Believers mistakenly believe that you wont go through trial and temptation anymore once Jesus sets you free and you come to be a Christian. The truth is that temptation will come to test you to see if you are worthy to enter the kingdom if your faith is genuine. How are we worthy to enter the kingdom? It is when our faith has been proven. Faith in Jesus proven. You will not enter the kingdom of heaven except that you go through many trials, temptation to sin and that you have endured and have overcome. Many people fall during this period. They don't overcome. They get tempted and they go and sin. But it is those who endure under the temptation, they decide that even they have failed in the past they decide that now they are going to endure. They are going to have proper faith in Jesus. They are the ones who are going to overcome. Why? It is because when have true faith in Jesus it is then that we are set free and given the power to overcome during temptation. So be not surprised when you go through temptation to the very evilest desires to the very least. You will get them to some degree. But blessed is he who works out his faith before the Lord during temptation and he shows the Lord whom he is going to serve, Jesus and not the sin that is tempting him. What are you doing today in your temptations? Are you proving your faith? Or are you proving that you are just a sinner ...
