OPENING PRAYER: Father, give me the strength to resist temptation. 

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

BIBLE PASSAGE: Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV 

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

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.

16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.


Just as we cannot stop birds from flying over our heads but can stop them from nesting in our hair, so also can we not stop temptation from coming. However, we need not accept them or allow them to take a stronghold. The consequence of yielding to temptation can be disastrous whereas resisting it births victory
