Today Perry and Shawna show us that there is hope for being delivered from the powerful temptations that war against us. First Shawna defines temptation and in that definition points us to how we can win as we admit our weakness, tap into God’s power and choose to say “no.” Then Perry shows us that praying “Lead us not into temptation,” is evidence that we really are God’s children and that we will never eternally fall away. Then Todd Krygsheld, Chaplain at the Ottawa County Jail gets real and shares how God delivered him from the allure of the Texas Bikini Team.
Next we have a fun conversation about our “go to” comfort foods. Then Shawna shows us that our sinful desires can be overwhelmed by “the expulsive power of a new affection:” Our desire for God himself! Next, Perry shares how easy it would be for him to be addicted to porn with Todd pointing out that it’s in recognizing how weak we are, that we can win against temptation. Finally, Perry shares how God gave him the power to say “no” to porn after it had such a hold on him as a teen with Todd pointing out that as believers we now have a choice and a power to say “no!” Listen to these best of moment in our Lord’s prayer series.
