Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak (Mark 14:38).
Let us just go ahead and establish that there are things that tempt us to sin. Also, let us admit that we sometimes succumb to those temptations. Odds are, that there will be temptations in our lives this very day. How do we overcome them and stay pure? Jesus gave a great way for success.
First, we need to be watchful for the temptations so that we are aware of their existence.
Second, we need to be prayerful people. It will be very difficult to give into the temptation when we are praying to God.
If we keep these facts in our minds, then there is no temptation that we cannot endure.
