It’s all-out war!
Are you winning?
Every Christian is engaged in a battle―whether we know it or not, we are soldiers in a spiritual war. But many Christians feel more like P.O.W.s than commandos! The problem? The very thing we thought we were saved from―sin―continues to fight for supremacy in our lives. And far too often it seems like it’s winning. But Larry Dixon assures us that it doesn’t have to be this way. We can win the battle. We can live a life of victory. With wisdom, understanding and a healthy dose of humor, Dr. Dixon delivers a knock-out punch to temptation and sin. Using the spiritual principles of the apostle Paul and other biblical writers, Dr. Dixon shows how it is possible to enjoy the power of God in our lives so that we can be prepared when temptation strikes.
Dr. Dixon’s primary emphasis is on a biblical strategy to oppose the discouraging—and damaging—effects of temptation and sin in our lives. Temptation and sin are not the same, and understanding the differences between the two allows us to pursue a proper battle plan for spiritual success.
When Temptation Strikes portrays the normal Christian life as one of growing in victory over temptation, but also of confessing sin and finding restoration when one has given in to its enticement. Although he does not promise sinless perfection this side of glory, Dr. Dixon declares that the believer can pursue godliness, make God-pleasing choices and find freedom in the Spirit of God. He also discusses the role of the church in the process of temptation, sin, confession, repentance and restoration.
