Temptation and God’s Faithfulness

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:1 -

For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:2 - and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:3 - and all ate the same spiritual food;

Do not be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “THE PEOPLE SAT DOWN TO EAT AND DRINK, AND STOOD UP TO PLAY.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:13 - No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:14 -

Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:15 - I speak as to prudent people. You judge what I say.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:16 - Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the [fn]bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:17 - Since there is one [fn]bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one [fn]bread.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:18 - Look at [fn]the nation Israel. Are not those who eat the sacrifices sharers in the altar?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:27 - If one of the unbelievers invites you and you want to go, eat anything that is set before you without asking questions for conscience’ sake.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:28 - But if anyone says to you, “This is meat consecrated to idols,” do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for conscience’ sake.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:29 - I do not mean your own conscience, but the other person’s. For why is my freedom judged by another’s conscience?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:30 - If I partake with gratefulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:31 -

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:32 - Give no offense either to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 10:33 - just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, so that they may be saved.
