“Believers Obtain Good from Temptation!”

“Martin Luther, the Reformer said, ‘Three things make a good servant of God, prayer, meditation and temptation.’  So then, by God’s grace even temptation may work good for the believer, because by it a Christian grows more humble. God would rather let His children fall into the Devil’s hands than to see them proud. Temptation makes the plumes of pride to fall . . . Better is that temptation that humbles, than the duty which makes us proud. Let those that are tempted be wise enough to make good use of their temptations . . . as we should endeavor to improve our afflictions.”  ~Thomas Watson
