Praying In: Lead Us Not Into Temptation

Sermon preached at RUF’s Wednesday Night Fellowship on Nov. 7, 2018. The temptation to sin, to forsake God, and forge our own path (“you do you”) does not come from God but from the Devil. Temptation is rooted in doubt and distrust. If we believed God was good, loving, and for us, we’d always heed His voice and do as He says. But we don’t. What is it going to take to convince us that God is good, loving, and for us? How can He lead us not into temptation, which is to say, to lead us out of it, through it, over it? We need to see Jesus, listen to Jesus, and rest in Jesus.
