Here Is an EASY TECHNIQUE For Christians To Successfully Resist Temptation

All Christians have the desire to do good works for God - such as caring for others, volunteering, witnessing, visitation, writing & publishing, donating,
speaking, counseling, prayer, music and Bible study. These ministries can sometimes be difficult and time-consuming to accomplish.

However, there is ALWAYS one good work that can be accomplished quickly and directly (with the right technique) - this good work is to reject a temptation attack from Satan.

The hard part about temptation is that resisting it produces a gnawing negative feeling. If you say "No", Satan keeps tempting you until you say "Yes".

The EASY TECHNIQUE is to change that negative feeling to a positive feeling.

Instead of struggling to not do a bad work, switch it around by rejecting the temptation as doing a good work pleasing to God and a positive credit to you.

For example, suppose you have a marijuana problem and you want to stop. When the temptation hits, say "No, I reject Satan's temptation as a good work pleasing to God". Repeat as needed.

Every time that Satan tempts you, treat his attack as a positive opportunity to do a good work for God.

Instead of always being on the defensive, this EASY TECHNIQUE allows you to take offensive action against temptation attacks.

Satan will soon quit tempting you, because if his attacks are resulting in good works for God, he is working against himself.

THIS TECHNIQUE MAY SEEM SIMPLE, BUT IT REALLY WORKS!

1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
