Temptation and Test

ENDURING TEMPTATION AND RECEIVING SALVATION

The relationship between enduring temptation and receiving salvation, according to Elder James, is closely tied because temptation can be a means to prove our faith (Jas 1:12). But how do we prove ourselves?

We prove ourselves by successfully enduring temptation and tests without losing faith in God. Life’s temptations are hurdles we have to overcome to receive salvation, but temptation itself does not help us realize the purpose of God’s salvation plan for us.

Proving ourselves also implies that we are able to come out of those trials in better spiritual shape than before, thereby qualifying ourselves for the kingdom of God: "Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been proved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him" (Jas 1:12).

"Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. "(Rev 2:10)

God knew beforehand that Satan was about to strike some of the faithful of Smyrna Church by threatening their physical lives. But the Lord did not take them away from Satan’s attacks. Instead, He made known Satan’s schemes to prepare them and encouraged them to remain faithful to the point of death.

Likewise today, God has made known Satan’s intentions to destroy us with the temptations and tests of this world. If we are rooted in Him and are filled with His Spirit and His word, we will be able to withstand the work of the evil one and remain faithful to the end.
