How to resist temptation

Temptation is something every Christian face. And it doesn’t matter how long you have been following Christ. But if we remain watchful and pray for ourselves and others, the Holy Spirit will enable us to resist temptation.
Here are five tried and true steps Mary Fairchild of http://www.thoughtco.com says you can take to resist temptation.

Recognize your tendency to Sin

Flee from temptation

Resist temptation with the Word of truth

Refocus your mind and heart with praise

Repent quickly when you fail


Watch with me and pray lest the Tempter overpower you. For though the spirit is willing enough, the body is weak.

Mark 14:38 (KJV) Bible Gateway
