Pray that ye enter not into temptation. Lk 22:40 When temptation does come along, ask for help in resisting it, and not entering into it. Also, pray this when things are turning bad, and when you're tired and exhausted. (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: Mat 6:13 Lk 11:4

Jesus answered them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant [slave WU] of sin. And the servant abideth [slave remains WU] not in [with WU] the house [family] for ever: but the Son abideth [for]ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Jh 8:34-36

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted [oppressed], and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of [by] all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended [turn away from the faith WU], and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity [wickedness WU] shall abound, the love of many shall wax [grow] cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Mat 24:9-13 Hard-heartedness makes it easy to be deceived and to hate people, and makes it hard to endure persecution for righteousness sake, makes it easy to turn away from the faith.

Wherefore [therefore] I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven [he who is forgiven little WU], the same loveth little. Lk 7:47 Fairly often, someone who has done a lot of sinning (harm to themselves and others) finally gets sick of it, the harm gets to be too much to bear. When they see Jesus, they want to receive the compassionate relief and healing He brings. They are ready to admit they need help, and long for the good way, see Jesus is The Way, and put their faith in Him, no longer in themselves. The proud are blind to it all, plunging forward on their own course.
