1 Corinthians 10:13: "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."

We are going to continue looking at the four steps to overcoming temptation. We have already covered the first two, which are:

1. Count on your death with Christ.
2. Count on Christ's life in you.

The third step you must take is to arm yourself with the Word of God.

We have already learned about the mighty weapon of prayer which God has given us. But God has given us another weapon to use against Satan. This weapon is the Word of God. Ephesians 6:17 says, "Take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God."

When the Lord Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, He used this weapon to defeat Satan. Three times Satan tempted the Lord Jesus, and three times Jesus answered him with the Word of God.
