We’ve added a new webpage featuring the sermon series “You Can and Must Resist Temptation.”

In this new series focus, Associate Pastor Jess introduces you to the concept that there are two categories of people that attend a church. The first category are those who look for ways to indulge temptation. And the second category are those who look for ways to resist temptation.

Put it this way: there are those trying to get away with sin and there are those trying to get away from sin. It’s not always obvious in the church who that is but in a body of believers, and it’s always been this way, there is a mix of people and they’re here for various reasons.

Which category are you in?

Humble love and submission to the Lord while still being tempted by worldliness, or are you proud and complacent in your idolatrous cravings and ungrateful grumblings against the will of God, feeling safe in your worldliness and seeking ways out of godliness?

Which one are you?

Today’s passage has something for both categories.

Pastor Jess entitled these messages, “You Can and Must Resist Temptation.” In four parts, delivered over four weeks, we examine 1 Corinthians 10:1-13. Of those verses, the verse you are probably most familiar with is verse 13.

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13

People usually say, “God won’t give you more than you can handle, won’t give you more than you can bear. You can overcome anything.”

We begin with a focus on verses 12 and 13.
