1) What is the difference between a ‘trial’ and a ‘temptation’?

2) Why is it important to remember that God never entices us to do evil? What happens when we forget this truth?

3) What are the biggest temptations you face on a daily basis?

4) Can you think of a time when a trial became a temptation to sin because you responded wrongly? What did you learn from that experience?

5) Has this sermon helped you view trials in a more positive light? What difference will that make in your life?

6) How has the sermon informed and enhanced your praying of this line?
