Taming Temptation



Beacon Light International Baptist Cathedral

Louisiana, USA

Lecture Description

"The apostle Paul understood the value of learning from the past. In 1 Corinthians 10 (, he highlighted events from Israel’s history to provide examples of spiritual realities and warn against sin. Paul wanted his readers to learn, just as Israel had discovered, that Spiritual Pride is a powerful deceiver and self-reliance is a great reducer.
Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12, ESV )
Take heed is an expression that means to watch carefully, be careful, be vigilant, or be on the lookout.”
The word stands in verse 12 refers to “holding one’s ground, being steadfast, or remaining firm in one’s position.” Paul conveys the idea of a person who thinks he’s standing firm in the faith, but in reality is overly confident and self-deceived. “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” says - 1 Corinthians 10:12"
