"YE ARE ABLE"

The important consideration with regard to a temptation is what one does about it. Even Jesus was tempted, yet without sin. In other words, he did not yield to any temptation. We may be tempted, and there are two ways in which we shall respond: we shall go along with the temptation or we shall refuse to go along with it. If we refuse to go along with the temptation, we, as Christian Science teaches, have taken the first step in handling it, overcoming it.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 495), "When the illusion of sickness or sin tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea." Here is indicated a very important point. If we cling steadfastly to Truth, error will not find a welcome in our thinking.
