BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE

1 Corinthians 10:13

 

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

 

 

LESSON

 

The temptations the Corinthians faced were not unique, and the Lord would give them grace to handle any “temptation” they might face. God has promised to enable us to do His will in any and every situation, and He will stand true to His promise. He provides “a way of escape” with every temptation He allows to touch us, namely: the power to overcome every temptation. The Corinthians were putting themselves in danger by continuing to attend cultic meals, which they needed to stop doing. Nevertheless God had made a way of escape open to them, as He had with Israel. The Lord’s Supper, and the Christian fellowship connected with it, were His divine replacement for this idolatrous activity.

History helps us to not repeat the same mistakes. We have learned dozens of lessons after watching others make mistakes. Why should day-to-day Christian living be any different? Paul teaches us about Christian living by using history and God’s promises.
