Decisions

When I have a problem,
do I ask myself: “What would Jesus Do”?
Since, that is beyond any human’s comprehension,
do I instead ask myself: “What would Jesus’ disciple do”?
Since, that is still beyond most humans’ comprehension,
do I just ask myself: “What would a human who needs Grace do”?

After I have made a decision,
do I ask myself: “Would I act this way in The Temple?”
Since, this is beyond any human’s ability to moderate,
do I instead ask myself: “Would I act this way at Church?”
Since, this is still beyond most humans’ ability to moderate,
do I just ask myself: “Would a human who needs Grace act this way”?

These are hard choices, because I live in a world that subjects me to daily temptations that appeal to my sinful nature and distort my Creator’s Purpose for my life. Therefore, the Christian needs to watch and pray every day, in order to be delivered from the physical and spiritual entrapment that is waiting to ensnare my heart and soul for all eternity.

In Satan’s temptation of Eve in Genesis 3 and in his temptation of Jesus in Matthew 4, we see the tactics he used and still uses with us. While varied in their details, most temptations fall into one of three categories as listed in 1 John 2:16: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.Excerpts from How does Satan tempt us?

“In everything, therefore treat people the same way you want them to treat you…” Matthew 7:12
