5 Ways to Overcome Sexual Temptation

Leaders, especially spiritual leaders are vulnerable to sexual temptation. A little touch, a harmless peek on the screen, time alone with the opposite sex, all these may lead to the fall. How to overcome these temptations? First, be encouraged by the Scripture which tells us we can overcome temptation with God’s help "... He [will] provide a way out so that you can endure it" (1 Corinthians 10:13). Then...

#1 Flee from it. “Flee from sexual immorality" (1 Corinthians 6:18). Learn from Joseph in Genesis 39.

#2 Trust God, not yourself. I know by experience; you alone can't handle it. Distrust yourself and trust God. Dependence on Him and not-self is the key to overcoming.

#3 Watch or be alert and pray. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matthew 26:41).

#4 Put on the full armor of God. “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes" (Ephesians 6:11)

#5 Fear the Lord. A healthy fear of the Lord is crucial to a successful walk of faith. If we fear God and think about His ways, we can choose to walk an upright life with His help.
