We cannot genuinely pray for our Heavenly Father to “deliver us from evil” if we are not striving to avoid personal temptations to sin. There are different ways by which you may be enticed to sun sin. You may be intimidated by a stronger personality; you may see some promise of personal advancement. Enticement can even come in the form of a well-meaning peer who offers counsel that is contrary to God’s word. “If sinners entice you” Notice that we are not to be concerned with The pitfalls And shortcomings of others. What entice someone else to sin may not even be a temptation for you. But here is the vital principle. Whatever sins do entice you do not consent to them.

When you feel there tug of sin do not consent to is alluring invitation.
