10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Wednesday we continued our series on James. Lesson Two was titled ‘Enduring Temption’

“When people are tempted and still continue strong, they should be happy. After they have proved their faith, God will reward them with life forever. God promised this to all those who love him.”

1) How can we remain strong and resist temptation?

We agreed that temptation rarely sneaks up on us. We know what tempts us and we often seek it out. Bill explained that we do this because we are selfish and want to do what we want when we want.

Jack added that we do this in spite of the fact that we know it is not in our best interest and won’t make us happy in the long term.

Bonnie said God gives us the power to resist temptation and find a better life. Choosing this path requires strength and patience. Only the Holy Spirit can give us this power. God didn’t say living a righteous life would be easy only that it would be worth it.

2) What are the rewards of living a Godly life?

Judy said that being faithful results in blessings.

We agreed that God blesses us in many ways. Additionally, we agreed that trials can result in our greatest blessings.

Tom reminded us that heaven is our greatest reward.

Next week Lesson Three — ‘Living Proof’

See you Wednesday.

John
