In Three Things About Sin, the prescription for sin is to deal with the temptation before it gives way to sin. It’s like getting a vaccine; preparing now to avoid a bigger problem later.
1) Our temptations are not unique to us: Others have struggled with the same issues in the past.
2) God will limit temptation to what we can handle: God doesn’t tempt us and he does limit the enemy’s power to do so.
3) God will provide a way out: We can ask God to enable us to see the way out, give us the will to take it, and the strength to persevere.
And then we can withstand the temptation — just as he promised.
