1 Corinthians 10:13
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.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
1 Corinthians 6:12
“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
1 Peter 5:10
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
1 Peter 2:11
Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
Can a man carry fire next to his chest and his clothes not be burned?
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
