Many of us struggle with same-sex attraction, but how do we resist when the temptations are so strong? In this video, I discuss the real secrets to resisting temptation.
The Secret to Resisting Same-Sex Temptation
When you give your life to Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us to resist our flesh, which causes us to pursue our own selfish desires instead of God. The flesh directs us towards our own selfish desires and the Holy Spirit directs us toward God. The Holy Spirit is stronger than your flesh but you have to be willing to yield to him. You have to be the one to choose the Holy Spirit over your own desires.
What Happens When We Don't Yield to the Holy Spirit
We give in to our sinful nature
We leave room for the enemy to enter
Lack of Peace
"The purpose of the Holy Spirit is to transform us so that we can follow the will of God. We cannot walk in the spirit and walk in the flesh at the same time. We can't serve two masters. "
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Galatians 5:16-24 NIV
