There Hath No Temptation Taken You
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man…
Temptation is a struggle for every Christian. No Christian, regardless of their level of spiritual maturity, is ever immune from temptation. The Bible says that “there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man…”. That means that every temptation that we face has been experienced by someone else, and it also means that every temptation that we face has also been experienced by the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Book of Hebrews tells us in chapter four and verse number fifteen that [Christ] “was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Every temptation, every struggle, every battle that we face as Christians today has all been faced and overcome by our Great Saviour, Jesus Christ.
May we realize that we are never alone when it comes to temptation. May we understand that every temptation, every trial, every battle that we face is common to man. Of even greater importance, let us remember that God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ to overcome any and every temptation that may come our way.
