Temptation is not sin. It’s actually a compliment. Satan doesn’t need to tempt those that are already his. Temptation isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a normal part of living in a fallen world. You’re in the same company as Jesus! Sometimes we will fall to the temptation but the more we resist, the more Christ-like we are becoming. Temptation cannot be defeated without the Spirit. So temptation keeps us dependent upon God.
