Don’t Tempt Yourself

March 13

“And do not present your members
as instruments of unrighteousness to sin,
but present yourselves to God
as being alive from the dead,
and your members as
instruments of righteousness to God.”
Romans 6:13

Do not present yourself…

Sin comes when we present ourselves to it. We choose what we read, where we go, with whom we associate. These are free will choices. If you’re an alcoholic, it’s your free will to go or not to go to a bar. If a man looks at porn – it is his choice to go there. The only way to break the habit is …do not present yourself…

You may not have a choice in what your weakness is, but you do have a choice in whether or not to tempt yourself. Become aware of what situations prompt the temptation and nip it there in the bud.

Do not present yourself…

If you have a friend and you know that whenever you’re with that friend you’re going to sin, do not present yourself…

The Word of God says, “Do not present yourself…”
