Temptation Sermon - Pastor Steve Winter

This is the scriptural text I used for my sermon tonight. I hope,
Lord willing, to have the sermon uploaded to
http://www.acts2-38.org/audio sometime this evening.

Matthew 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the
wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

Mark 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days,
tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels
ministered unto him.

Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those
days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward
hungered.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such
as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer
you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the
temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to
bear it.

Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye
which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of
meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Hebrews 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being
tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be
touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all
points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for
when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the
Lord hath promised to them that love him.
James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of
God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he
any man:
James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of
his own lust, and enticed.

Mark 14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
