You may be surprised to know that testing and temptation can have a positive effect in the life of a believer. It’s been said that Christians are a lot like tea bags: you don’t know what they’re made of until you put them in hot water.
Sometimes when things are going well, we become more vulnerable to temptation. When we can’t always make ends meet or we’re sick or we’re having challenges, we are dependent on God. But when things are going well and we have a little extra money in the bank or our health is good, we can become complacent, lazy, and ultimately susceptible. That is when temptation will hit.
Temptation isn’t a sin; it’s a call to battle. And there is a blessing waiting for the man or the woman who resists temptation.
