Temptation and Test

LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION

But there is a difference between being tempted by evil and being tempted by our own lusts or weaknesses. For this reason, Jesus said, "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Mt 26:41).

Entering into temptation is definitely connected to our weaknesses. Even the Lord's Prayer emphasizes the need to pray that the Lord leads us away from it (Mt 6:13a). But what does Jesus mean? Will prayer alone do the trick?

In addition to prayer, living each day by overcoming our weaknesses is the best way to prevent ourselves from falling. Joseph emerged victorious because he endured and eventually fled from temptation. He did not step into temptation when it came to him. By his example, we must leave no room for Satan to cause harm to our spirituality.

Because of his determination, the Lord delivered Joseph from that evil, and this is also how the Lord delivers us from the evil one (Mt 6:13b). When we invite or enter into temptation, we will surely be tempted and, eventually, be drawn away by the desires of the flesh.

When we are tempted, we cannot place the blame on God. Elder James explained to those who inaccurately claimed, "I am tempted by God," that "God cannot be temped by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone" (Jas 1:13).
