James chapter 1 verses 13 - 15 says this;

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

This passage is a sobering expression of what happens when we let our evil desires entice us away from the path of righteousness.

We are subjected to temptation so that a desire is conceived in our hearts. The result of this conception in our hearts is that sin is birthed in our body and if that sin is let to grow to maturity, it will give birth to death.

We always need the help of the Lord to resist temptation for even when the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. He always provides a way of escape as it says 1 Corinthians chapter 10 verse 13;

And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Thus we must call upon the Lord for His provision of help so that we may remain on the narrow path that leads to life.
