Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

Temptation


What is temptation?
Temptation is an attraction to commit sin.

Can you always overcome temptation?
Yes, because no temptation can force you into sin, and God will always help you.
"And God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that which you are able: but will make also with temptation issue, that you may be able to bear it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)

What should you do when you are tempted?
First, ask God to help you, and then, get busy doing something else. 
"And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil." (Matthew 6:13).

How can you avoid temptations?
Avoid all persons, places or things that may lead you into sin, and ask God for actual graces.

What are actual graces?
They are "helps" from God which enlighten the mind and strengthen the will to do good and avoid evil.
"My grace is sufficient for thee: for power is made perfect in infirmity." (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Actual graces come and go, but Sanctifying Grace remains in the soul. Sanctifying Grace is LIFE, actual grace is HELP.
