How do we resist temptation?

"We resist temptation the way Jesus did, through the word of the kingdom. As we follow Jesus, we see the gospel reclaim our identity, reorder our desires, and reframe our future. We need to recognize that we are living in a war zone, a cosmos being ripped from the dominion of its demonic overlords. We are right now part of a counterinsurgency through the mission of Christ. It's only in this way that we see the power of temptation over us is broken, as the demonic powers flee from the presence of the only Man they fear." -- Russell Moore, "Tempted and Tried"
