The Escape from Temptation | Sermon

Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on 1 Corinthians 10:6-22 on the Ninth Sunday after Trinity, August 14, 2022.

Why were the sins of the Israelites recorded in Scripture? (1 Cor. 10:6)

What will God not let happen to us because of Christ’s cross? (1 Cor. 10:13)

What do eating, drinking, and playing have to do with idolatry?

Who is your escape from temptation? What has He instituted to be your real and ready means of escape?

Why did our Christian ancestors build our church building?

“God is _____________, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it,” (1 Cor. 10:13).

St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our congregation who are unable to gather with us due to illness, work, etc. This resource is not intended to encourage anyone from gathering in person around God’s Word and Sacraments. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.

We give thanks to God that these sermons are a blessing to you and pray that if you’re in Humboldt County, you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM as God wills. (See the map below for directions.) If you’re not within driving distance of Ferndale CA, we encourage you to use the Church Locator at to find a church near you so you can gather in person with the communion of saints in your area.
