In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Our constant temptation is temptation to unbelief. That’s why Luther, in his explanation of the Sixth Petition of the Lord’s Prayer, says that the petition, “Lead us not into evil” is a request that “God would guard and keep us so that the devil, the world, and our sinful nature may not deceive or mislead us into false belief, despair, and other great shame and vice.” Our temptation isn’t necessarily to sins of varying varieties, but to a particular sin, but to unbelief, to doubt that what God says is true, to no longer believe that God has our best interest in mind in all that He allows to come our way.
