Remember These When Thou Art Tempted (2 Peter 1:3-9)Pastor Justin Pratt, October 23, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
This morning Pastor Justin showed us briefly how we can have the power to overcome temptation; with a steady diet of God's Word, and by being faithful in prayer.
Tonight we dive a little deeper into these two aids and examine eight things we should remember in times when we are tempted. If you remember these things, and exercise them when we face temptation, then we can overcome it!
"God will never ask us to do something that we are incapable of doing without His help."

2 Peter 1:3-9
3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. (KJV)
