Bible Challenge – Mark 14

“Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” v 38 (NLT)

Let’s be honest, we may not face execution for our faith, but we will probably face many problems that wear us down.  We deal with irritating people whom we must love and serve; we face the burden of unfinished tasks or lack of obvious results; we cope with helpers who let us down of fail to comprehend.  Remember that in times of great stress, we are vulnerable to temptation, even if we have a willing spirit.  Jesus explained how to resist this from happening:

  1. Keep Watch – stay awake and be morally vigilant
  2. Pray to God – this is how to maintain your vigilance
  3. Seek support of friends and loved ones – this is how you build up your resistance and help others; when one is weak, others are strong.
  4. Focus on the purpose God has given you – This is how you do Gods will not your own.
Today, stay a step ahead of temptation by praying and knowing your triggers.  Trust the Lord and call out to Him! Fight the temptation with the power given by the Holy Spirit!
