Devo of the Week: James 1:14-15

“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 gives birth to death.” James shares an anatomy of sin, how it works in us.  Perhaps God would rather transform our desires than simply work at changing our behavior.  Is temptation best dealt with at the point of desire or later in the chain James describes? How is desire transformed?   Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
