Session 1 of 8
1 Corinthians 10:13-14
On every hand, the Christian soldier wars and battles; seldom does he ever get to have a day off. His prime enemies are really two-fold in number, the flesh, and the devil. One must quickly learn to recognise both foes if one is to successfully stand against them so as to secure the victory.
God has promised His children that they are not alone in their hour of temptation. He will not allow us to be tempted above that which we are able to bear, but will with the temptation make a way to escape.
The writer of Hebrews tells us that “…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. One writer, commentating upon this verse said this: “These two elements seem most simple, but, alas, how many professing Christians act as if God were not living; and how many others, though seeking after Him, are not expecting from Him as Rewarder!”.
This sermon is both an encouragement and a challenge. There is simply no other way to walk with God so as to please Him than by faith. The one approaching unto God must be fully persuaded that not only is God able to do what He said he would do; but that He is also willing. We must be convinced not only of God’s power but also of His goodness!
