God sternly warns of judgment and gives us the opportunity to repent. In fact, no matter what sin confronts us, God faithfully provides a means of escape from the temptation – a promise that encourages us to resist to the uttermost of our ability. It may not be easy, but we can trust that God will help us to “endure” temptation. The million dollar question is whether you and I will trust Him and take the exit ramp He provides.
Questions for further thought:
1. In times of temptation, how have I seen God provide a way of escape?
2. In what ways has God humbled you in times of temptation? In what ways has He led you to victory?
Challenge: Consider the times when you took Satan’s bait and forsook the exit ramp that God provided. How could the outcome have been different? What steps might you take to ensure you will take the exit ramp next time?
