The Process of Temptation
In His Presence: Each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren (James 1:14-16).
The key characteristic of temptation is that it is achieved by virtue of deception. Satan’s job is to tempt you, to solicit you away from God. Paul said: “I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3). Satan is a chameleon, taking on any shape or size necessary to take our attention away from Christ.
