Nowhere in the bible is there a promise of a temptation-free life. Jesus challenges His followers to take up their crosses and die daily and Romans 8:12-13 challenges us to continue to live from the Spirit of God rather than our sinful nature. Struggles of one sort or another are most likely therefore to remain a “thorn in the flesh” to us (2 Corinthians 12:7). As we yield to Christ and learn to overcome, temptations could well diminish, and we can never rule out a sovereign act of God. In this world, however, freedoms generally need fighting for and an important lesson from Judges 3:2 is to learn battle experience: it makes us stronger.
