I Corinthians 10:12-13

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

God is faithful, He will not let you be tempted beyond…so, if a Christian is tempted to sin, and chooses to indulge in that sin, isn’t he or she saying God is not faithful, and will not be able to rescue him or her from the temptation, which to them seem more than they can bear?

When we pass from this world to glory, and see the Lord for the first time, we will know immediately that He is enough, and could have easily provided that way out for us. If the Christian grasps God’s grace and strength and does not sin, will he or she not right then at that very moment experience that HE IS ENOUGH to sustain them in all of life – against temptation and toward godliness? Amen.
