Where You Can Find Strength to Overcome Any Temptation

October 21

“Man shall not live by bread alone,
            but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:4

There was a minister a few years ago who had a huge falling out when some very dark sins came to light. He was fired from his job, and it shook the foundations of the church where he was the pastor.

I heard him talk about his experience recently, and he recounted a time when he realized how serious his problem was. He started quoting Romans 6, memorized the chapter, and recited it every time he faced temptation. But in the midst of that, his problems only got worse as he fell deeper and deeper into his sin.

I hear people all the time say, “When the devil comes against you, just quote Scripture.” But quoting the Scriptures alone isn’t enough… you have to live by it! You can go right down the tubes quoting the Bible the whole way!

So don’t just quote the Bible… submit your life to the Bible. That doesn’t mean you won’t face temptation. But it does mean that when temptation comes, you’ll be poised to face it head-on and win because of the spiritual strength and stamina that comes from living by the Word of God!

LIVE BY THE WORD OF GOD, AND YOU’LL HAVE THE SPIRITUAL STRENGTH AND STAMINA TO OVERCOME ANY TEMPTATION!

About Prestonwood Baptist Church

Prestonwood is a dynamic congregation, with people from all over the North Texas region who have come together for a common purpose—to study God’s Word, to worship Him, to do His work, and to reach the world with the Gospel message.

About Pastor Jack Graham

Pastor Jack Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with nearly 37,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a DifferenceLessons from the HeartA Hope and a FutureLife According to JesusAre you Fit for Life? andPowering UpCourageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
