Facing and Overcoming Temptation

In James 1:13–18, James tells Christians that the temptations they face do not originate from God but from their own desires. These sinful desires of their hearts, when acted upon by temptation and opportunity, give birth to sin, which ultimately leads to death. Christians should not deceive themselves by thinking their sin is somehow God’s doing. Instead, they should recognize that their sinfulness comes from within. In contrast, God is responsible for all that is good, and Christians should give thanks to him for all the good gifts he provides. The greatest gift is the new life given to those who believe in the word of truth.
