What a mercy it is that God, though he will not let his people escape trial, will really let them escape, for this is a way of escape for them, and the best way of escape, too. Guzik illustrates the deceptive nature of temptation - Temptation works like rocks in a harbor; when the tide is low, everybody sees the danger and avoids it. Temptation is the common experience of the people of God. The Lord still permits trials and temptations to enter the lives of His children. Always use this phrase to cause a pause that you might ponder the test - what is the purpose? When the context in a passage is to induce one to sin, most modern Bible versions translate the test as a "temptation". It means a way out of a defile, a mountain pass. The reason for our confidence that every temptation can be overcome is that God is faithful. You can. III. The first is that God is angry with the sufferer and is taking His revenge. He said that the idea inherent in temptation. His new thought and feeling may even discover temptations where duller souls would miss them. Be sure to claim the opposite grace from Christ. It was to them a positive promise, and to all in the same circumstances it may be regarded as such now. He will “keep” that which you have committed to Him against that day (2Ti 1:12). --When the test comes retain your faith in God's purposes through the test. The self confident are admonished lest their high opinion of themselves should be the occasion of their fall. The greatly tempted Christ was the perfectly sinless Christ. This same warning actually applies to all of these steps, for even memorizing Scripture can be a subtle form of self-effort! (Ed: Amen!) (1Jn 4:4). They make a new resolution. ], A beautiful instance is recorded in the life of Catherine of Siena. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. Those who seriously believe in God at all will have little difficulty in passing to the second way of looking upon trial, and if their faith is worthy of the name, it will be quite as obvious as the former. Pass this on to your readers if you think it will help. 8:2; and, on the other side, Jas 1:13-note. (MacArthur, J., F., Jr. It cannot be too fully shown that becoming a Christian never alters a man's circumstances; it only alters his relation to the circumstances. That is not harshness, it is kindness; that is not undue severity, it is magnanimity, it is compassion, it is fair-play. It is a shame to sink wilfully below that which we know we ought to be. Your trials hitherto have been moderate; and God will not suffer you to be unduly tried.’ This is the ordinary interpretation of this passage, and one which gives a simple and natural sense. It matters not how severe the trial; or how long it may be continued; or how much they may feel their own feebleness; yet he who has appointed the trial is abundantly able to uphold them. They do not always seem like troubles; in fact, many temptations seem attractive. It is your own lust that begins to produce the solicitation to do evil. It would be a bad business for us if we were not tried in some way.2 [Note: The Life of R. W. Dale of Birmingham, 544. NO. Their feelings are a strange mingle-mangle of incorrect caution and incorrect doubt; and Paul seems to me, in this verse, to give them a cordial by which their fainting spirits may be revived, and I would like to pass it on to any of you who also need it. The same Spirit that sustained the people of God in the wilderness period is the Spirit that sustains the church. Now life offers us those kinds of tests. IV. 4. What a glorious provision is made for those who are sorely tried in the Christian life to know there is a way of escape that God provides. It will never be self-effort, but only Spirit-enablement! Let no man seek his own, but every man another's, But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth, Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another. You've passed the test. 10:13). “Oh, but!” says one, “I am tempted, as you said a little while ago, with blasphemous and horrible thoughts.” So was Master John Bunyan; read his Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and see what he had to pass through. It seems so obvious to those who hold it that few of them give any pains to think it out to its issues, or realize how small a God this of theirs must be. It will never be too feeble or too long upon the way. To endure (5297) (hupophero from hupo = under + phero = bear) means to bear up (from underneath), to bear a burden, to submit to, to put up with, to underpin (to form part of, strengthen, or replace the foundation of as of a sagging building) despite difficulty and suffering. Can we not see how He is dealing with us, according to this Pauline statement? Can you break the thread?" All rights reserved). ), The Prisoners of Hope, i. TEMPTATION IS, IN THE CASE OF GOD'S PEOPLE, ACCOMPANIED BY A MEANS OF ESCAPE. Temptation at its strongest is only inducement. II. Matthew 26:41, "Hold me up, and I shall be safe!" The way of escape - "the outlet" (YLT). Yet often, through my unbelief, It may be as strong a shoot in the old forest sapling as the manifestations of passion in earlier life. The New Living Translation says: They are ropes that catch and hold him. It can devise no stratagem without being clearly visible to Him. Lay hold on life, and it shall be ], I sometimes think that in the case of those who are not tried by sharp outward temptations to break God’s commandments, the trial may come in inward temptations to distrust His grace. And if we failed it's because we took our attention away from Christ, the faithful High Priest who could nurture us through it and focused on something else. A. You may be tried in two senses, — trial will come, and the trial will often be a temptation, while the temptation will always be a trial. Temptation may even take more subtle and perilous forms for the Christian. He was able to establish his habit.

If it be asked why we are placed in circumstances so perilous, so trying, the answer, so far as we can formulate it, is that we are being tested with a view to the great ministries awaiting us in the next life. The second example that Paul marshals is a negative one. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” God sends tests but not temptations. Because of his work, Plimsoll became known as the sailor's friend. The principle is that one is made able to get under a heavy load and to carry it. The boy replied, "You're wrong, mister. Thankfully, our heavenly Father understands our load limit and comes alongside to help. Sins are everywhere; they sit down with you at your board, and they go with you to your bed. It is always easier to fight down from the mountain slope than up from the lowland valleys. (A critical and exegetical commentary).
