Important distinction:
1. God tests us to evaluate our love and loyalty.
2. Satan tempts us to undermine God's purposes and provision.
3. Their Decision
Satan tempted Eve on 3 different levels:
• Lust of the flesh (Forbidden desire)
• Lust of the eyes (Forbidden gaze)
• Pride of Life (Forbidden ambition)
Satan deceived Eve
• He enticed her into wrong.
• He lead her from the truth.
• He mislead her mind.
Satan tricked Eve
craftiness = tricked
• He argued in a clever way
• He disguised his real intentions
Questions for us:
• Who best represents the serpent in your life? In other words, who are you listening to that is seeking to lure you away from a righteous life/mindset?
• What things can/should you appreciate more that God has given you? (Make a list)
• How can appreciating these things/people help lesson temptation in your life?
