Perseverance in Temptation

13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. 16Do not err, my beloved brothers. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no ficklenss, neither shadow of turning. 18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
