Lead Us Not Into Temptation
All too often we forget that Scripture instructs us to flee from temptation and the sin that so easily trips us up. Modern society presents temptation as something that should be enjoyed, and we all to often buy into that disasterous mindset.
Today we talk about walking in the paths of righteousness and Godly opportunity instead of paths that would lead us into temptation. We also talk about taking charge over the evil from which, by the Spirit of God, we will be delivered.

Deliver Us From Evil
The first bad decision the first man and woman made was to not flee from temptation, but to walk by it and look at it. The next bad decision was to entertain evil instead of crushing its head. I'm afraid that after seeing the results of those two choices, we still haven't learned. We continue to flirt with temptation and entertain evil or just tolerate it.
We allow the enemy to destroy our families, our communities, our churches, and our own lives, and just hope that it will go away. But when evil encountered Jesus, it knew the party was over. Let's seek for the answer to the question, if the nature and Spirit of Jesus is alive and growing in us, why doesn't this happen?
Along with tolerating evil in our own lives, we all to often just stand by and watch evil take over. We let it take people who God loves to hell, stealing life from them along the way, and we say and do nothing. It's time we stop waiting until we are forced to defend ourselves in a seemingly hopeless battle against an enemy we allowed to grow strong and rooted. It's time to declare war on the enemy and start advancing violently.
This is what we're doing in the virtual community God has called us to reach. And it's not easy – it's far from being a game. We've seen opposition and attacks continue to grow. And we covet your prayers for wisdom and strength. But we've also seen great things begin to happen. There's a mighty move of God that's about to take place through this ministry avenue, and we need your prayers and support.
Currently there are more than 10,821,544 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
