“Sin does not reign, but it does remain.” Alistair Begg reminds us of this truth as he looks at James’ teaching in chapter 1. Because of our new birth, we are fully equipped by God to resist temptation. Our response to temptation should be to deal with it ruthlessly and consistently in order to avoid sin.
13Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
