TEMPTATION

“To realize God’s presence is the one sovereign remedy against temptation.” Francois Fenelon

“Supreme affection for God will drive out illicit affections and shape natural ones.” Horace Bushnell

“Come and let the healing, cleansing rays of Calvary play upon your hearts until the very seed of evil is sterilized.”—Stuart Holden

“Unwillingness to accept God’s “way of escape” from temptation frightens me what a rebel yet resides within.” Jim Elliot

“The joy of the Lord is your strength,” to resist sin as well as to endure toil. Fullness of joy is the Christian’s shield. Christ has such a shield for every believer.” Mile-Stone Papers

“It’s not that people don’t want God, it’s that people found something they wanted more than God. The rich young ruler made his decision on what he wanted most in life.” A. W. Tozer

“We can seek God today and get prepared to meet temptation tomorrow; but if we meet the enemy without first having met God, the outcome is not conjectural; the issue is already decided. We can only lose.” AW Tozer

“Even temptations are overruled for good to the children of God. A tree which is shaken by the wind is more settled and rooted. Just so, the blowing of a temptation does but settle a Christian the more in grace.” Thomas Watson

“When Christians find themselves exposed to temptation they should pray to God to uphold them, and when they are tempted they should not be discouraged. It is not a sin to be tempted; the sin is to fall into temptation.” D.L. Moody

“Any battle for victory, power, and deliverance – from ourselves and from sin – which is not based constantly upon the gazing and the beholding of the Lord Jesus, with the heart and life lifted up to Him, is doomed to failure.” Alan Redpath

“Temptations which accompany the working day will be conquered on the basis of the morning breakthrough to God. Decisions, demanded by work, become easier and simpler where they are made not in the fear of men, but only in the sight of God. He wants to give us today the power which we need for our work.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“When old companions, old lusts, and sins crowd in upon you, and when you feel that you are ready to sink, what can save you, sinking sinner? This alone – I have a high priest in heaven, and he can support in the hour of affliction. This alone can give you peace – I have a high priest in heaven. When you are dying – when friends can do you no good – when sins rise up like spectres around your bed – what can give you peace? This: “I have a high priest in heaven”" Robert Murray McCheyne
